As far as I know, power management by ACPI is the default. In
order to shut down a system that does not have ACPI, but APM,
ACPI needs to be disabled in most cases, as well as APM needs
to be enabled manually. I don't know how "Paralells Workstation"
handles this, but older PCs (with APM, but without ACPI) can
be shut down this way.
(I hope I did understand your question as intended.)
