All of us have both desktops and laptops and we run VMware. Some of us have noticed that a laptop can be suspended and woken up with no ill effects to running virtual machines. Some of us see various problems in virtual machines after emerging from suspend.
VMware has in it’s Help menu a command called Tip of the day. One of the tips says:
On a laptop computer, suspend the virtual machine before you suspend or hibernate the host computer
VMware’s manual and Google have nothing else to add. Does anyone else have any further information on the problem?
Also, wouldn’t it be nice if VMware would automatically suspend running virtual machines when the host is suspended?
