I'm using oneiric with unity. I want to find a solution to automatically save the state of my virtualbox virtual machine before I logout or shutdown because I always forget to do it manually. I know I can use Vboxmanage controlvm [vmname] savestate to save state in terminal. But how do I make ubuntu execute this command before logging out?

This is not so much about VirtualBox, as it is about running scripts automatically in Ubuntu. –  iglvzx Jan 1 '12 at 23:22

You can add the Vboxmanage command to your ~/.bash_logout file and it will execute upon the logoff event.
