Figured out how to activate it:

  qm set <VMID> -agent 1

I'm guessing you need the spice guest agent installed on the vm (windows or 
linux). Proxmox can then issue commands to it, such as "shutdown" or "freeze" 
(on windows this invokes the VSS api which makes vm backups databases such as 
SQL server safe).

No idea how or when it is invoked from the proxmox side though.
