Yeah, but iLO doesn't do this with the versions we support.  It
simulates a "button press".

The 1.70+ firmware has "hold_power_button", but the 1.62 firmware only
has "set_power_state off" (or something like it) which translates to
"press_power_button" in the 1.70/1.75 firmware.

The newer firmware solves this problem with the press_power_button,
hold_power_button distinction, but unfortunately, we need to make the
iLO agent more intelligent as to how it controls power without breaking
compatibility with the 1.62 firmware.

Ugly :)
