and why in the world don't you move the VMs to other hosts instead
shutdown hosts *and* virtual machines?

frankly in case of power-outage we move all guests to a single node and
shut down everything else but i would never come to the idea to shutdown
a virtual server at any point in time

in a proper HA setup your remaining hosts needs to be able to cover the
virtual machines of failed ones anyways
