This is normal behaviour with xl, domains do not persist when they are
not running. The disk state etc will (unless you delete it or something)
You can restart them by simply using xl create on the same config file

If you want domains to persist while they are not running then you need
to use a toolstack which supports "managed domains". The two main
choices there are the xapi toolstack (part of XCP, also available in
Debian & Ubuntu) or libvirt. (The old xend toolstack also supports this
mode, but is deprecated so I wouldn't recommend using it for new
