It does work but doesn't necessarily do anything obvious until the
shutdown or reboot key is pressed. If you are connecting with a
serial console (not just SSH) from a different system then the
messages are displayed. However, not all systems shut down or reboot
depending on the type of fault or BIOS/ACPI bugs.
