I am used to the Virtualbox "save machine state" exit strategy, which is a handy way to let the host reboot without shutting down the vm.
I recently switched to qemu because of its VT-x in VT-x support, necessary for VS2015 emulators, and missing in Virtualbox.
I can handle the commandline startup, but what I haven't been able to do succesfully is to save a VM's state that can be later booted up and resumed. How can I do this? Note that libvirt's virtual machine manager is not an option as I can't seem to install the networking firewall dependencies (nor does it seem necessary, so I don't really want to). I'm running Arch Linux.
