Windows “Auto Suspends” In ESX


KB ID 0000xxx Dtd xx/xx/xx


Has annoyed me for a while, Seen on VSphere4 ESX and ESXi, a guest Windows 7 machine (either x86 or x64) “Suspends” after a while.


1. Power the Windows 7 VM down.

2. Right click the VM and Select “Edit Settings”.

3. Select the Options Tab > Power Options > Select “Put OS into standby mode..” > OK.

vm auto suspends

4. Power the VM on again, problem sorted.
