For example you have a VM named winxp in datastore named 500G

You can list all VMs : vmware-cmd -l
To get state of winxp : vmware-cmd /vmfs/volumes/500G/winxp/winxp.vmx getstate
To stop winxp : vmware-cmd /vmfs/volumes/500G/winxp/winxp.vmx stop
To start winxp : vmware-cmd /vmfs/volumes/500G/winxp/winxp.vmx start

For more options

vmware-cmd --help
or
man vmware-cmd
