Hi there experts, I'm having some problems with my BIOS settings on my motherboard. I have Virtualization Technology enabled, as it is necessary for my 64-bit virtual machines, yet each time I leave my computer on overnight (which is every night), or leave it unattended long enough for it to hibernate or sleep or whatever, when I come back, all my virtual machines have stopped working. I must then restart my computer, disable Virtualization Technology in the BIOS, and then restart my computer, and re-enable Virtualization Technology in my BIOS, and then it will work again, until I leave my computer unattended.

This is obviously very aggravating, so, without disabling sleep mode or have it never go into power saving / hibernation mode, how can I fix this?

I'm running Windows Vista 64-bit and my motherboard is a NVIDIA nForce 650i Ultra, and I thank you for taking your time to read this (and hopefully provide me with a fix to this madness!).
