That last one seems very similar to a microsoft KB entry
I found, but it describes what to do in about 5 different
cases, and my KVM doesn't match any of the 5 :-).

I have a feeling it would actually be simpler to install
a program on the KVM to use for shutdown that sends a
message to the host asking it to run "virsh destroy"
in about 30 seconds, then tells windows to shutdown :-).
