VirtualBox is not restoring my saved machine state for Windows 7 Host, ArchLinux Guest

I'm using VirtualBox 3.1.2 (on Windows 7, as my host OS) to experiment with an ArchLinux install. I use the Save Machine State option when powering down my VM so that it can be restored as it was. If I try to restore it immediately, without closing VirtualBox, the restore state works fine. However if I attempt to do the same after closing VirtualBox GUI, on launching VirtualBox, VirtualBox behaves as if the machine state was never saved, and starts the VM akin to a cold-boot.
All changes made to my had disk do remain - just that the Save previous state feature does not work - it doesn't restore the VM to the state it was saved, rather it acts as the system was switched off.
