It would be nice to be able to detach/reattach the UI from a running VM

The idea is fairly simple. Basically it would be really nice if when you "closed" a running VM's window, you could have an option to "continue running in the background".

Basically a runtime way of switching to and from headless display mode. Once we have this, it would be great if a VM that is currently running in headless mode, to be able to attach the UI to it.

This would be a bit of a time saver from an administrative point of view.

In addition, a simple extension of this would be have an option in the GUI "Start Headless"
