I suggest you repeat the test without the -h. Wait until the OS shuts down (it should not actually power off), then pull the power cord.

I did "sudo shutdown -h now" from the console. The pc switched off as expected. Then I removed the power cable and then plugged it back in. According to the theory above, this should have caused the computer to detect a power loss and turn itself back on. Instead it remained off (as I expected).
