AFAIK that's the default behavior for HVM domUs.

You need to make the domU OS Xen-aware. With Windows domU, you can do
this by installing GPLPV (to be specific, shutdown monitor service
will do what you want). With Linux domU, you can either convert the
domU to PV, or install PV drivers (which currently only available for
2.6.18 kernel). I don't think there's anything you can do about
Leopard domU though,
