9.0 w/ACPI enabled, excluding NICs

I am running a small personal file server. To ensure constant network
access, had to disable the ACPI, hence no power saving at all. The CPU
gets very warm as everything (presumably) is running at full throttle.
Is there any way to disable the ACPI partially, i.e. allow spin-down
for disks etc, but keep the NICs running?

Hope that this question was understandable. Thanks.
