Description (last modified by Frank Mehnert)

I need to start/resume saved state VMs without the process being visible, but I need to access the windows later.

New features for startvm (or some other command): startvm paused: The VM would be started but paused. startvm paused hidden: The VM would be started but paused and hidden (no window shown). startvm show: A command for showing the hidden VM window.

Or new commands: startvmpaused, startvmpausedhidden, startvmshow

VirtualBox --start-paused --startvm VM_NAME

Even available with VBox 4.1.x. The hidden feature is another story.
