To start with, you could set:

   background_fsck="NO" /etc/rc.conf to force filesystem checking to happen first.

However, you are not going to have a very happy computing experience  
with any flavor of Unix if you keep shutting the system down  
uncleanly several times a day because of power failures.  Try to  
obtain a UPS with a serial or USB connection and use a port like  
apcupsd to shut down cleanly...
