Is the GNOME desktop, or acpid running inside the guest? Without one of those two there is no application to react to the shutdown event, so it won't work.
Also, does 'virsh shutdown $vmname' have any different effect?
This may be related to BZ #594596.
If the vm was installed with a "Minimal" installation set, then acpid won't have been installed, causing this behaviour.
Thanks for your kindly reply!
I have test a "full" install,I test the rhel5.4 ,rhel5.5,rhel6 and windows2003,And verified they all work well.
Because I have change the machine some days ago,can't find the environment again.
But the problem had been solved.Therefore this bug can be closed.I will install "minimal"install test BZ #594596 again.
Sorry,I reply so late.Because after I report the bug ,and back to school for a few days , after I returned,other things surrouned it.
