Description Adam Williamson 2013-05-08 18:05:19 EDT
This is 100% reproducible for me, but could be affected by my guest machine config, I guess.

My host here is running F19 (my regular desktop). I have a VM into which I've done a normal install of F19 Beta TC3.

If I boot the guest to multi-user.target (runlevel 3, console only) and trigger a Reboot from the host (in virt-manager's guest window, click Shut Down then Reboot from the top bar), the system reboots (very swiftly; doesn't look like a clean shutdown, though IMBW).

If I boot the guest normally and leave it at GDM, and trigger a Reboot from the host, nothing at all happens.

If I boot the guest normally, log in to GNOME, and trigger a Reboot from the host, the guest suspends instead of rebooting. If I then resume the guest and run 'shutdown' from a console, the guest reboots instead of shutting down.

Looks like there's some kind of wacky interaction between libvirt and GNOME, here?

I've been begging GNOME developers to fix their default handling of ACPI wihtin a guest since at least F16.

Meanwhile, we _still_ don't have out-of-the-box guest agent working, which would also let us avoid the need to react to ACPI in the first place.
