VMWare Player slows down computer after exit
Often, when I suspend a vmware virtual machine, my disk IO is saturated for a few minutes and it makes the computer unusable until it's finished. (This is after VMware has actually quit, not while it has the saving progress bar up). The virtual machine is only set to use around 3gb of my 8gb, so it's not a swapping issue.
The host os is Windows 7, and the Guest is Ubuntu 11.10 x64.
I took a screenshot which shows the resource monitor while this is happening - interestingly, it's not actually vmware itself that's writing to the file.
This is a problem I've had on two completely different machines when using VMware, so I'd be keen to resolve it or at least figure out what's happening!
