VMWare Workstation6
Virtual Machine - Vista

This is the first time I've run across this but Vista is being suspended' after a period of time.  As I'm not working with the machine all the time I'm not sure how long it takes for this to occur.  I have serval machines running on this VM Workstation but VIsta is the only one that is suspended.  Where are the settings or what triggers this suspension?
