See this thread:
http://serverfault.com/questions/562943/ubuntu-12-04-lts-kvm-host-with-a-openbsd-5-4-guest-virsh-shutdown-not-working

Only solution seems to be using halt -p from inside the guest.

Have you tried disabling apm and use acpi only?
It seems both are installed by default and that apm takes precedents
over acpi.
