I also get the same. I have 8.0-RC2 installed on a desktop not a laptop.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is because the "powerd" daemon isn't enabled by default on PC-BSD 8.0. (It causes crashes / stability problems with some nvidia systems) This error is cosmetic in nature only though, just a warning. If you want to try enabling powerd, you can do so in /etc/rc.conf, just look for "powerd_enable".

Assuming the problems are fixed for FreeBSD 8.1, we'll enable it by default :)
