If you have a virtual machine in a suspended state and you no longer need to resume use of the machine, you can discard the suspended state. Discarding the suspended state removes the saved memory and returns the machines to a powered off state.


A virtual machine that is suspended.


  1. From the Navigator, select Compute > Virtual Machines.
  2. Select the virtual machine for which you would like to discard the state.
  3. Click More > Discard suspended state.


The state is discarded.
