        Thanks mac.pro.user,

         

        That's exactly what I experienced and what annoys me.

        No wonder though, got nearly the same configuration as you do.

        Well, I have 12 GB to heat my room.

         

         






        Thanks,

          Micha and Mac.Pro.User,

           

           

          Thanks for your feedback and feature requests. We will take them into consideration as we plan future releases of VMware Fusion.

           

          Best,

            My only beef with Fusion is that I have it set on Space 4 in Leopard and I hate that it doesn't start in Full screen mode. Its just a pain.

              This is true Fusion does not restore a new VM or a suspended VM to full screen.  I have this setting in my .vmx for the day Fusion may honor it: gui.fullScreenAtPowerOn = "TRUE"

               

              To solve this problem in the meanwhile, I use UIScripting to automate putting a VM in full screen mode.  I have Fusion assigned to a Space, and a VM bundle in my Login Items, and I have a "go to full screen" Applescript applet which puts the VM in full screen in the space.  Here's the source:

               

              tell application "VMware Fusion"

                   activate

              end tell

               

              tell application "System Events"

                   tell process "VMware Fusion"

                        tell menu bar 1

                             tell menu bar item "View"

                                  tell menu "View"

                                       click menu item "Full Screen (Exit Single Window)"

                                  end tell

                             end tell

                        end tell

                   end tell

              end tell
