Restart with snapshot

A nice feature should whem closing a VM a dialog popup ups wich the three options:

  • Save the machine state
  • Send the shutdown signal
  • Power Off the machine

+ Restore current snapshot xyz

A fourth option should be nice to have.

  • Restart the machine with the current snapshot xyz.

The machine should then be powered off, snapshot restored and restarted.

Regards, Luc

It's a non-trivial feature request (since the process which gets the user's decision would need to terminate), but nevertheless an idea worth considering. I can see that it can save a lot of annoying (and distracting) mouse clicks in certain use cases.

Especially in the future (when the UI will be fully separated from the process executing the VM) this might become less complicated. In principle it could be implemented with the current default of having unified UI and VM process, but that's not really worth the effort.
