Could you edit /usr/src/sys/i386/bios/apm.c and a go to line
which says:

	printf("apm: Other PM system enabled.\n");

and replace it with:

	printf("apm: Other (%d) PM system enabled.\n", (int)power_pm_get_type());

and recompile and install your kernels and modules? I suspect that
it will show 1 for the type, which means that acpi has somehow
claimed the power management even though it is supposed to be turned
