Vmware : Power / Reset Synopsis

Options for Powering On a Virtual Machine

You can choose from the following options when powering on a virtual machine:

Power On — powers on the virtual machine. This is the same as clicking the Power On button on the toolbar. When the virtual machine is suspended, this menu item appears as Resume.

You can choose from the following options when powering off a virtual machine:

Power Off — powers off the virtual machine. This is similar to turning off a physical computer by pressing its power button, so any programs running in the virtual machine may be adversely affected.

Reset — resets the virtual machine. This is similar to resetting a physical computer by pressing its reset button, so any programs running in the virtual machine may be adversely affected.

Shut Down Guest — runs the associated script, then gracefully shuts the guest operating system down and, if the guest operating system supports Advanced Power Management, powers off the virtual machine. This is the same as choosing Start > Shut Down > Shut Down in a Windows operating system or issuing a shutdown command in a Linux operating system.

Restart Guest — gracefully restarts the virtual machine. This is the same as choosing Start > Shut Down > Restart in a Windows operating system or issuing a reboot command in a Linux operating system.

The stop button ( ) on the toolbar can be configured to power off the virtual machine or shut down the guest operating system. Choose VM > Settings, then click Options > Power, and choose the desired action in the list under Power Controls.
