 +==== Shutting down your VM ====
 +
 +To shut down your VM, you just need to close the window with the VM. This will present you with a choice of how to shut down your VM. **Never select "Power off the machine"​!!!**. This option is the equivalent of yanking the power cord on a running desktop machine. This option can result in hard drive corruption and many other problems.
 +
 +When closing your VM, make sure that you always select either "Save the machine state" (this is the best option, as it will allow you to resume the VM in the exact same state you left it) or "Send the shutdown signal"​ (which will perform an orderly shutdown of the machine).
 +
 +If you need to shut down the machine where your VM is running, make sure you close your VM before shutting down your machine. Shutting down your machine while the VM is running can have the same effect as selecting the "Power off the machine"​ option when closing the VM.
