Exclamation [NetBSD i386] can't shutdown/reboot

I have NetBSD 8 (i386) on an old 786 (i.e., 'p3') and it won't shutdown/reboot, only does a few shutdown commands, hangs with no further output, stays on. I think it doesn't have ACPI, but it has APM (I can start it without ACPI.) Same happens with Slackware 14.2 (32-bit) on it, which says says 'system halted' and stays on.

Perhaps the legacy kernel has apm enabled?

I think Slackware removed apm but you can find online guides about redoing the kernel w/ apm.

OpenBSD i386 has apm by default:
[i386 Only] apm(4) takes precedence over acpi(4)
The device detection on i386 has been modified to make apm(4) take precedence over acpi(4). It means that if your hardware has both apm and acpi devices, only apm will attach. If for some reason you prefer to use acpi, disable apm on your acpi-enabled kernel using config(8) or boot -c.
