Shutdown problems on virtual PC

I run FreeBSD 6 under Parallesl Workstation.
When I try to shutdown with

shutdown -p now

It acts like the -p isn't there.  I'm not sure what power management
protocol Paralells Workstation uses.  Nor do I know what the
default is for FreeBSD 6 (default kernel).  What would be the next older 
management?  Is there some knob to turn to tell FreeBSD 6 to use
something older?  Or do I have to rebuild the kernel?
