Some of machines around me have this problem too, but I have never cared
to investigate :)

[looks ok to me too]

Pressing the power button delivers an interrupt to the acpi driver,
and it triggers an event handler which winds up to call a function
acpi_SetSleepState(), so the first step is to see if an interrupt is
delivered to the acpi driver.
  $ vmstat -i |grep acpi
  (press power button)
  $ vmstat -i |grep acpi

The number doesn't change on machines with non-working power button here,
so I need to find why it's not.
But if it does on your machine, try rebuilding the driver with debugging
support and see what's happening:
  % sh
  $ cd /sys/dev/acpica5
  $ make obj && make depend
  $ su
  (you're asked the root password here)
  # make install
  # echo 'debug.acpi.layer="ACPI_EVENTS ACPI_BUTTON"'>>/boot/loader.conf
  # echo 'debug.acpi.level="ACPI_LV_FUNCTIONS ACPI_LV_INFO"'>>/boot/loader.conf
  # reboot
