For Windows HVM guest you can try James Harper's GPLPV. You can choose
to install only the shutdown monitor service (without xen-net and
xen-vbd drivers) if you want, but I suggest you install all of them as
the PV drivers increase performance greatly.

For Linux HVM domUs, you need to find PV drivers. On RHEL5.3 it's
included on standard kernel. I believe the one responsible for
monitoring Xen shutdown request is xen-platform-pci.ko
