Thanks to everyone who replied.
There is four different suggestions:

1.To turn off power management 
Run '/etc/rc2.d/S85power stop' and then comment that script out.

2. edit /etc/power.conf and change the line at the bottom to say
"noshutdown" need to touch /etc/noautoshutdown and edit /etc/power.conf
make sure under the autoshutdown line, the behaviour is set to 'noshutdown';
autopm = 'disable'; system-threshold=always-on.
4.Remove the packages then it won't do it at all.  Otherwise
there's an /etc/power.conf

pkgs that you can remove:

RITX1:[829]-[err:0]# pkginfo|grep -i power
system      SUNWpmowm      Power Management OW Utilities Man Pages
system      SUNWpmowr      Power Management OW Utilities, (Root)
system      SUNWpmowu      Power Management OW Utilities, (Usr)
system      SUNWpmr        Power Management config file and rc script
system      SUNWpmu        Power Management binaries

Subject: How to disable autoshutdown on Solaris 2.6

Hi again,
We have an Ultra-10 with Solaris 2.6 and it power off itself automatically
if it is not in use during 30 minutes. 
As lots of you know, Solaris ask to enable autoshutdown at the end of the
first installation, I think it is enabled. Dou you have any idea about how
to disable autoshutdown.
I got the below message at messages file.

hostname /usr/lib/power/powerd: Autoshutdown
hostname unix: cpr: System is being suspended

Best wishes,

Betul Yar
