You could try a verbose boot (equivalent: boot -v) and see _when_
the system stops resonding. It would help to post the error message
(last lines of console output) to the list to get a better impression
about what's happening.

If I remember correctly, "safe mode" refers to the mode with ACPI
disabled, right? In this case, it _could_ be an ACPI problem (a really
wild guess, as you have provided no information about the system you
are trying to boot FreeBSD on).
