In many cases, this indicates a problem introduced by the
computer's BIOS settings or ACPI. Make sure ACPI is enabled
and the BIOS is configured properly (e. g. no timer settings
modified or features deactivated). You could also check if
a newer version of the BIOS is available.

In addition, there's the suggestion to add the line


to /boot/loader.conf and reboot.
