    Virtual Machines constantly shutting down after being idle. (VMware Fusion 11.5.6 & macOS Catalina 10.15.6)

      I have been using a Kali Linux virtual machine for a couple years now without any issues on my MacBook Pro and on VMware Fusion. Ever since the past month, my Virtual Machines have started shutting down over a long period of being idle (when I sleep for example).


      This also happens on a Windows 10 VM.



      It only started happening after I updated to VMware Fusion 11.5.6. I have disabled the VM from suspending by adding this line in my Kali Linux's .vmx file:

      suspend.disabled = "TRUE"

      Although, it has not fixed the issue.


      I have also configured my Windows VM to never turn off / sleep but the VM still suspends/shuts down after being idle for a long period of time as mentioned above. See below image:


      Support would be greatly appreciated.
