Restart should work, actual poweroff won't work with Xen 2.0.  Don't you want 
to keep your Xen box up all the time? :-p

APM / ACPI poweroff aren't supported under Xen 2.0, however it should work 
under 3.0 with its enhanced ACPI support (it might even work now with 
-unstable but that's not really production ready yet).
