[PC-BSD Testing] RC1 - laptops : SUDO + SUSPEND + SHUTDOWN

Hi there,
reporting a very strange behavior occurring with RC1, on various different  
laptops [Toshiba Satellite Pro A300, Acer Aspire 5742G] : sudo asks for  
*root* password to execute a command, instead of user's password ... don't  
think it has anything to do with hardware issue, but just reporting the  
incident environment ...
moreover, on those same systems, even though the suspend action is not  
enabled in any of the power profiles, and the selected action for lid  
closed is to turn the screen off, upon opening of the lid a system suspend  
is triggered none the less, freezing the machine.
third, none of the entries of the 'leave' startup menu actually work,  
whether the action is forced by a second click or the countdown is left to  
expire, in the end nothing happens and from that moment on the 'leave'  
menu does not pop up any more command window ...

am i just missing something here ? can all of these issues connected  
somehow, maybe a hardware/acpi problem or what ?

on the 'eyecandy' side, on both laptops no sound worked until i  
port-installed the phono-xine backend and configured it instead of the  
default [and only] gstreamer ...

Thanx All !
