    Is anyone else running VMWare's Fusion 3 having trouble getting their laptop to sleep? It's weird cause
    1) I did a test, and as long as I ran my virtual machine, the computer would not sleep.
    2) I closed the virtual machines, but left fusion 3 "running" and still, the computer would not sleep.
    3) I 'quit' Fusion 3, and finally my laptop went to sleep.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue? Anybody know of any solutions? Thanks, to all those who reply.

    My wifes iMac will not sleep at all, whether VMWareFusion is running or not. Interestingly there are root level vmnet processes running all the time that I think are responsible.

    Confirmed

    Yes, it will blank the screen but won't sleep.

    Sorry no solution though, for me this is actually a highly desired feature
    not a problem (so I never pursued a "solution")

    Yes, it will - at least for me ...
