    permanent disabling idle virtual machine going to sleep or background

    extrashot Novice

      I have a Windows 10 Virtual machine running on a VMware 15 workstation.

      Occasionally due to inactivity the machine sleeps. As in below screenshot

      inactive Windows VM sleeps.

      On pressing resume this virtual machine it resumes.

      Is there a way by which I can disable this feature. That is even if it appears VM is idle (there might be some download happening in background)

      so I want to disable this feature in VMware if  it is possible.


      What I mean to say let some VM keep running in background. Irrespective of it is active or not.
