Quick Tip: Send Ctr + Alt + Del to XEN Vps / Guest os

If you hit CTRL+ALT+Delete your host will go down under CentOS Linux 5.x. The solution is hit CTRL key thrice. Now it will disable CTRL+ALT+Del for host. Next just hit alt+del to complete guest CTRL+ALT+Del cycle.

Alternatively, you can type the following on host to shutdown vps:
xm shutdown myGuestVpsOsName

    you could also disable the ctrl-alt-delete for the host via /etc/inittab by commenting the following line: ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -r now
