You issue the command "shutdown -p now". This should work with any BIOS
that has apm or acpi, as far as I know.
As Derek says, you have an IRQ conflict that needs to be resolved.
Afraid I don't remember much about that. When I first installed FreeBSD
(seven years ago), I had to settle several such conflicts, but I seem to
recall that it was fairly easy.
