I have been using a Kali Linux virtual machine for a couple years now without any issues on my MacBook Pro and on VMware Fusion. Ever since the past month, my Virtual Machines have started shutting down over a long period of being idle (when I sleep for example).
This also happens on a Windows 10 VM.
It only started happening after I updated to VMware Fusion 11.5.6. I have disabled the VM from suspending by adding this line in my Kali Linux’s .vmx file:
suspend.disabled = “TRUE”
Although, it has not fixed the issue.
I have also configured my Windows VM to never turn off / sleep but the VM still suspends/shuts down after being idle for a long period of time as mentioned above.
Support would be greatly appreciated.
