So, a little late, but here are the relevant settings for the X230.
# Energy saving
# Increase netgraph memory size for heavy VirtualBox network load
# Don't power devices with no driver attached
# APIC Timers block C3
# Mute speaker when headphone jack is inserted and enable headphones
# No memory tests at boot time
#hw.psm.synaptics_support=1 # un-comment if you use the touchpad
# Boot-time kernel tuning
# Increase max stack size
#power saving (HUGE difference)
# Enable scrolling with 3rd mouse button
moused_flags="-VH -U12 -L5"
powerd_flags="-a hiadaptive -b hiadaptive"
# Kernel Modules
kld_list="acpi_ibm aio sem cuse coretemp libiconv libmchain cd9660_iconv msdosfs_iconv vmm nmdm"
# Disable the system speaker
# Tune for desktop usage
# Enable shm_allow_removed (for Chromium)
# Suspend when the lid is closed
# Enable acpi_ibm button events
# Increase audio volume
# faster shutdown
/usr/sbin/service powerd quietrestart
/usr/sbin/service netif restart
I don't know if all that is still needed on HEAD, but it's all running fine on my box.
