  • Thread-topic: HVM guest shutdown send ACPI Power Event

Is there any plans to help HVM guests shutdown cleanly by issuing an ACPI power 
button event on HVM shutdown with a configurable timeout?

This way it would allow ACPI aware HVM guests to initiate a clean shutdown and 
xend will only forcibly shutdown the guest if it hasn't powered itself off 
within the timeout value.

This would be extremely helpful for Windows guests which can detect the ACPI 
power button event and cleanly shutdown.
