What may cause guests to fail to power off?

Lately, I get a few of my CentOS 7 guests end up in the following stanza of

Code: Select all

    574         else if (!strcmp(a->argv[1], "poweroff"))
    575         {
    576             ComPtr<IProgress> progress;
    577             CHECK_ERROR_BREAK(console, PowerDown(progress.asOutParam()));
    579             rc = showProgress(progress);
    580             CHECK_PROGRESS_ERROR(progress, ("Failed to power off machine"));
    581         }
and they are then at VBOX_E_INVALID_VM_STATE.
Can you suggest what are possible causes for guests to fail to power off?
