I'd like to control VM guest's virtual power to provide me with a way to totally turn off a VM, or restart it.

Does VirtualBox support IPMI or any other power management schemes? I want to remotely manage the power.

Scroll down to VBoxManage controlvm

Note well the difference between acpipowerbutton and poweroff - one sends the "shutdown" ACPI signal, the other yanks the (virtual) power plug. – Piskvor May 7 '12 at 12:32

not sure about restart. but an ACPI Shutdown signal is available, which locates in Control menu.
