I've had a lot of trouble with VMs not shutting down properly after
apcupsd ininitates a shutdown. I had to place an additional script:

/usr/bin/logger -p daemon.warn UPS stopping all VMs
/usr/local/sbin/vm stopall
/usr/bin/logger -p daemon.warn VMs stopped

as "/usr/local/etc/apcupsd/doshutdown". 

You have NUT not apcupsd, but you may find my workaround useful.
