I use VMware on Linux quite extensively, and I am wondering where/what the equivalent of 'VMware-cmd' is on Fusion. I would like to be able to start/stop VM's, without the GUI (If possible).

There's a bunch of interesting stuff in /Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion (at least with fusion2). vmrun is the command that should let you manipulate running vms. I've used vmrun pretty heavily on linux, but never on fusion, so ymmv
