I believe that the issue you have outlined will depend on at least a couple
1. cloud-init version
You haven't stated the OS distro and versions you are currently using with
your instances while the doc links are specific to the latest version of
cloud-init (0.7.6 at the time of writing). The 'power-state-change' module
appears to have been added in Nov 2012 (
which should have been included in cloud-init 0.7.1, at least according to
the timeline on the Launchpad pages and my interpretation thereof :)
The reason I mention this is that I know that Ubuntu 12.04 LTS makes use of
cloud-init 0.6.3 and similar may be true for other OS distros/versions.
2. Inclusion in cloud-init config
While I would expect it to appear there by default (it does in Ubuntu 14.04
LTS), and assuming you are making use of cloud-init >= 0.7.1, the instance
should have an entry in /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg (under the
'cloud_final_modules' section) for the 'power-state-change' module in order
for it to be considered during a run e.g.
# The modules that run in the 'final' stage
Naturally, if the module is not included it will not be considered.
I hope that one of those is the pointer you were looking for.
