Alert if VM powered off for more than X

I'm a Noob to vRops. How to achieve this?

A bit rough and ready but one way could be to set a symptom definition with an appropriate wait cycle for powered down machines. So for 3 days (assuming default interval of 5 minutes per cycle) it would be 864 cycles.

Then set an alert with that symptom:

Of course there is probably a better way but its what I thought of first.
