After I moved from 4.8 to 5.0 (installed from scratch, 
not upgraded) 'shutdown -p now' will not work.

After issuing 'shutdown -p now' I get the following messages:
Power system off using ACPI...
ACPI power-off failed - timeout
Hit any button to restart

My kernel config file contains:
# Power management support (see NOTES for more options)
device          apm
(In 4.8 I used to have:	device apm0)

My rc.conf contains:

Help appreciated, Kjell
