Did not see this come out so I am resending it...

I would like to thank the following for their fast response-
in order of receipt:

o Chris Cariffe []
o Sean Quaint []
o Valeriy Glinskiy []
o Steve Hastings []
o Russell Ruby [russ@MATH.ORST.EDU]
o Mark McManus []
o Ben Strother []
o Allan West []
o Roy Rapoport []

There are two basic methods you can use, remove the 

  # system software
  package         SUNWpmowu       delete  # don't install sleep (/usr)
  package         SUNWpmowr       delete  # don't install sleep (/)
  package         SUNWpmu         delete  # don't install sleep (conf & rc)
  package         SUNWpmr         delete  # don't install sleep (binaries)

or, the second method is to create a file $(BASE)/noautoshutdown 
as part of the finish script

  # turn off autoshutdown
  touch /a/touchdown
 # Disable dtpower
 if [ -f /etc/rc2.d/S85power ]; then
  mv /etc/rc2.d/S85power /etc/rc2.d/s85power

We decided to use the second option(ya never know when the mandate 
will  come down and I do not want to have to install it on hundreds of
I just happen to be jumpstarting a box and it worked!!!

Thanks Again,
