The Stop Virtual Machine action allows you to halt a running VMWare Virtual Machine.
Warning: The Stop Virtual Machine action does not shut down the Guest operating system automatically. It is recommended you use the Suspend Virtual Machine action wherever possible.
Note: Currently (VMWare Workstation 5.5) it is impossible to stop teams, due to a limitation in VMWare. It is also impossible to restart VMs which are part of a team and have already been stopped.
Virtual Machine Configuration File
Enter the path to the Virtual Machine's .vmx configuration file, or alternatively (for VMWare Workstation 5.0 users) a Virtual Machine Team configuration (.vmtm).
