Windows needs someway to know its being shutdown. James' PV Drivers
install a service to support this.

hvm's don't know they are being shutdown on their own like pvm's do.
Shame the hardware doesn't announce the shutdown, like simulating a
button push on the power switch. I don't know the details surrounding
why this isn't the case, but that is how it is...
