I am running vmware workstation 8 on my Windows 7 host and my guest is Mac OS X Lion. Even though I set vmware to report the battery information to the guest, I can't see my battery. So every time I want to check my battery I have to exit full screen so I can go back to the host and then go back into my guest. Is there any way to get this working so I can just view the battery status in my guest?

Woody, I am curious - does this work if you have a Windows 7 Host OS + WinXP/Vista/Windows 7 Guest?
Is it an extra line (setting) that needs to be added to the VMX file of the Guest OS(es)?
I can't comment on the Mac OS situation because I do nothing with Mac, only versions of Windows and freeBSD. But the way I have my VMware installed, the window in which it runs is smaller than the screen on my Win7 machine. The result is that I can always see the task bar on my host Win7 which includes the battery information you were asking about. The controls for screen fitting are VMware controls at the top of your virtual machine. Set them so that your guest window is smaller than your host screen and you should have continuous access to your battery information.
