Default scripts for suspending and resuming a virtual machine are written to work together. If you disable the script for one of these actions, you must disable the script for the other action as well.
Before you begin
On Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD guest operating systems, to test, edit, or disable the running of a script, log in as root.
About this task
You cannot run scripts on Windows NT, Me, Windows 98, and Windows 95 guest operating systems.
- Open a command prompt or terminal in the guest operating system.
- Change to the VMware Tools installation directory.
C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Tools

What to do next
If you disabled the script for suspending a virtual machine, repeat this procedure to disable the script for resuming, or if you disabled the script for resuming, also disable the script for suspending.
