1. Identify the host running the guest
2. Get the uuid of the VM
3. Destroy the domain using "destroy_domain" utility
4. Reset the VM's powerstate using force=true

I run a number of Windows VMs and I generally only notice this problem on my 
ADMIN servers or VMs that I frequently manage using XenCenter. I suspect it may 
have something to do with the fact that XenCenter uses RDP for the guest 
"console" if xentools are installed. I haven't tested this theory yet however..
