I swear this used to work automatically on windows vista.. but if i have a vm open in 6.5x, and i reboot the host.. the vm doesnt suspend automatically.. i either have to cancel the reboot, or force the restart, which is a hard reset on the vm..
Does anyone know of a workaround to this issue?
AFAIK this has never worked.
Always suspend/ shutdown guest first before rebooting / hibernating the host
open a cmd and change directory to the installation dir of Workstation.
Run the command "vmrun.exe" - it should popup a helptext with further commands.
You can use this to stop / start / suspend ... VMs
