If you are using a FreeBSD amd64 kernel with Xen PV drivers installed, shutdown
behavior is controlled
by the PV "control" driver. This driver notices updates to the
"control/shutdown" node in the XenStore and
is supposed to act accordingly. For a reboot or power off event, it simply
shutdown_nice(RB_POWEROFF|RB_HALT), or shutdown_nice(0) as appropriate. If you
can capture the
value of the shutdown node in the XenStore, it should be pretty easy to debug
