Note that my ad8s1 is actually a serial ATA HD which hasn't been properly mounted on the system.
What do you mean by 'hasn't been properly mounted'? Failed to mount then the system gone to reboot? Or just you couldn't mout it?

When I try to restart my computer, I get the following error:
acpi: suspend request ignored (not ready yet)
acpi: request to enter state S5 failed (err 6)
So you're trying to 'restart' by power button? Perhaps this can indeed be configured in you bios ACPI section (soft-off mode or something like that).

As a clue to what may have caused that you no longer can boot... I had such a problem once after a power failure which occured while fsck was running. After reboot, the system stalled at HDD recognition (with no meaningful messages). I solved this by booting into single-user mode and performing fsck for all FreeBSD partitions.
BTW, when you finally manage to boot, add 'fsck_y_enable' to your rc.conf - this may help to avoid many hdd/fs-related errors on-boot.
