Power Off with ATX board wont work...

my FreeBSD 4.9 box (old, but rock solid, and as there are no security
concerns I do not intend to update it) has to be shut down every night
to reduce energy costs. But after shutdown is complete I get the "hit
any button to reboot" or so screen, but the atx power supply does not
turn off. This is rather anoying. I have compiled in all the relevant
stuff into the kernel but somehow I have missed something and google was
not very helpfull, too.

My question would be what I could have missed, and if this could be a
hardeware problem? It is an old 1.xGhz amd box, so nothing fancy here.

thanks in advance
