Other than already proposed solution, given that you are the only
person sitting near the machine & working power management, a press
of the power button should cleanly shut down the computer.

At least that is what happens on/with FreeBSD 6.x, with ACPI
enabled, on my IBM Thinkpad T42 when I am feeling lazy enough to
avoid typing "shutdown -p now".
