Some linux services do not operate after resuming from suspend

On my laptop, with VMWare Workstation Pro 15.5.0 (build-14665864), I have a virtual machine running Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 LTS, with a docker-ce daemon. I intend to use this machine for every-day development, and it is configured with NAT networking. Everything is the machine operates well, containers I've set up for access work well.

However, as it is customary, at the end of the day, for example, I pause my machines, with the intention of resuming at a later time. However, when the vm is resumed some services appear to not come back to operation, specifically the docker daemon. I have to restart the docker service or even the entire vm in order to have it operational again. This seems not to affect services like sshd or networking itself.

I have another machine running in a Oracle VirtualBox 6.0 environment with the exact same setup, and all services come right back up after a resume.

Is there anything that could be done to help with this issue?
