ACPI power button pauses the VM

After sending the ACPI power off command from either the virtualbox GUI interface or VBoxManage, the VM is paused. It does not seem to receive the shutdown signal at all.

After sending the shutdown signal, first the CPU usage by the VM goes up to (nearly) 100%, after a few seconds the VM is paused. When I unpause the VM, the Windows Vista guest indicates that the desktop has been locked to the login screen.

This behaviour occurs because the Vista guest is now able to 'suspend' the VM. The guest has changed it's default action for the power button to suspend instead of shutdown now, so virtualbox pauses the VM - as it should.

This is not a bug, maybe just unexpected behaviour. Sorry for bothering you.
