You must state which VMware product you are using, in this case it sounds like either Workstation or Fusion?

It would be better to know what VMware product/version you are using and the host OS, guest OS. Since you said the host is a laptop, best guess would be you are using Workstation Pro/Player on Windows/Linux or Fusion Pro/Player on macOS.

If the guest OS is some variant of Windows, unactivated Windows are known to suspend after some amount of time has passed.

Vmware workstation 16 pro with a windows 10 virtual.  I added this line suspend.disabled = "TRUE" to the vdx file and now the virtual is crashed.

Expect a moderator to move your thread to the area for Workstation, the {code} area is for SDK matters.

Not sure if this got moved, I can't find any other responses to it.  Anyone have any ideas?

As mentioned before, Windows 10 OS without license activation will suspend (even on a physical machine).
Assuming that the Windows 10 OS in the VM is activated, did your check the VM Power Options not to sleep after some period of time?
