VM of Windows7 is going to Suspend automaticaly

Jump to solution

Hi,

I am using VMware Workstation 6.5.1

My problem is VM with guest OS Windows 7 is going to Suspend automaticaly after some time.

I did not counted how long should I wait to see that but ... it is happen which is iritating since I do not have full control on that VM.

Is there any way to turn off this suspend option during inactivity?

I think I checked all Workstation settings, Internet and this forum but still failed to find any clue how to do that.

Interesting thing is that I have second VM with XP Proofessional and this one never ever suspend itself.

I appreciate any help.

Thank's Anton,

I did as you said, 1 hour passed and VM is still up and running. Seems to be an answer for my question.

1 hour more testings and will share with results.

EDIT: That's it - I needed to turn of power saving on Windows 7 - how easy :smileygrin:

Thank you a lot!!!
