I use VMWare Fusion to run XP for a couple of simple programmes I use at work. Is there any reason why I shouldn't just suspend my session in VMWare Fusion each time I finish, or is it better to 'Shut Down'? All I am interested in is quick loading and quitting as I generally only need to run XP for a few minutes to get the information I need. I don't want to screw up Windows though so it gets slower and slower over the days. I probably go into Windows two or three times a day, but as I say not for long. I don't want to leave it running as I like to free up my memory I also don't like running it when online because I don't trust it!
