[PVE-User] HA behavior with VMs (PVE 2.2 pre-release)

If you mean disabling HA allows me to regain full control of the VM, I do understand that, and at the moment consider it a workaround. 

Or do you mean by design, HA enabled = VM unconditionally runs and can't be powered off, regardless of the autostart parameter setting? 
That seems unlikely to me, isn't mentioned in the wiki HA section, and is why I emailed. If that's not how you intend it to work, I'd be happy to open a bug.
