how to (properly) shut down a fedora 20 virtual machine?

   not sure what list would be appropriate for this but i'll start here.
currently running RHEL 6.5 on a 64-bit laptop, and installed a new
fedora 20 VM using the Virtual Machine Manager -- seemed to work fine,
f20 came up, looks good, but now i want to shut it down, so from the
f20 console, i selected "Virtual Machine" -> "Shut Down" -> "Shut Down",
whereupon it *looks* like the VM shuts down, but the VMM window shows


   should i expect a different result? i was expecting the VMM window
to show that that VM was Stopped or something. i realize i could also
select "Force Off" but i'd prefer not to be that brutal.

   am i doing something wrong?
