You didn't mention which version of FreeBSD you were using, but the 
capability you're asking about depends on having APM (4.x) or APCI 
(5.x) configured.  Change this line in the GENERIC kernel:

# Power management support (see LINT for more options)
device          apm0    at nexus? disable flags 0x20 # Advanced Power 

...to "enable" and rebuild your kernel.
