What guest OS are you running. Is the acpid daemon running ? Please attach contents of /var/log/dmesg, and /proc/interrupts.
Comment 2 Gerry Reno 2009-06-01 09:29:35 EDT
Guest is F10.  Host is F11.  Attaching files from guest.

Guest (F10) acpid process
Comment 6 Daniel Berrange 2009-06-01 15:13:56 EDT
That just looks like the kernel ACPI thread, not the userspace daemon. You need the userspace daemon to handle the shutdown requests. Please check the acpid initscript is turned on.
Comment 7 Gerry Reno 2009-06-01 20:37:17 EDT
I checked all the guests and none of them had the acpid package installed.  So we installed acpid on all of them and the shutdown works fine now.

Would it be good if libvirt had a dependency on acpid?
Comment 8 Daniel Veillard 2009-06-02 02:58:53 EDT
c.f. comment #7:
Since libvirt is installed on the host, not on the guest, and the requirement
is to have the guest run acpid, that dependancy would not help, unfortunately.
