Missing the obvious. Part 2

I've been having problems with my OpenBSD machine seeming to just hang. Now, considering who I am it shouldn't be surprising that I would just reboot it instead of hooking up a monitor. Finally did so today. Nothing on the screen. Hit the keyboard a couple of times. Nothing. Rebooted. Immediately realized I hit the wrong keyboard. Before long it seemed to lock up again. It also made the same lovely "kerchunk" noise. This time I was able to hook up a monitor and logon. The computer immediately spun up. Of course, APM had gottened turned on somehow. I switched it in the bios from advanced to minimal as well as tweaking a few other settings. Works great so far. Hopefully minimal will give me some power savings without killing the network connection.
