The guest OS (Debian) running inside VirtualBox 6.0 on Windows 10 does not respond to ACPI Shutdown.
I've encountered this with the GitLAB CE Virtal Machine stack 12.1.6-0
(https://bitnami.com/stack/gitlab/virtual-machine) but I guess it might apply on other cases.
The acpid was installed:
sudo apt-get install acpid
but the VM still does not respond to ACPI Shutdown via: VirtualBox–>Machine–>ACPI Shutdown
I find the ACPI Shutdown very convenient. I usually need to start and then stop the VM without any other (command line) interaction.
