When it comes to VM's, in my case, it's quicker and easier to have the
host suspend all it's children, rather than shut them down.  This may
not be a good answer with a large number of child systems, if the time
required to suspend them all is greater than that to shut them down or
if the available runtime isn't that long; but in my case a suspend takes
only a few seconds.

The other benefit being that they're back online faster after the restart.


Yeah, I was just tossing this out as an idea, in my test environment
suspend makes more sense, but with a "large" number of virtual systems
shutdown might be worth testing.
