Do you really mean powerd(8)? Or the separate /etc/rc.d/power_profile
?  There was some confusion between the two earlier in this thread.
What related settings are you using, via {rc,sysctl,loader}.conf?
Which power-governing drivers are active on your machine: est? ichss?
smist? p4tcc? acpi_perf? acpi_throttle? acpi_thermal? acpi_video?
Which nvidia driver?  If you compile your kernel with options
ACPI_DEBUG, and enable acpi debugging messages, do you see any
