    Right now I use VMs for hosting test web applications, and I access them via Safari / Firefox in OS X. So I really don't have a need to keep them open. I don't need to see their terminal, etc. As long the machine starts, then I'm happy. Is there a way to close the screen of them w/out them shutting down?

    Best solution I can think of would be to hide the program, or minimize it to the Dock. :apple:-H will hide, btw.

    Hmmm I was hoping of a way to just run it in the background, but I guess :apple:+H will do just fine :)

    Or run it in a different space that you don't use...

    OPTION-click somewhere else or another app, should hide the app.
