I use a Mac Book Pro for Virtualization.

Though I HATE OS/X – VMWare Fusion runs just about everything and does it pretty well.

One of my devices is Windows XP

After running Windows Update, Windows XP got “stuck” shutting down.

Using the VMWare Fusion menus to try to force a shut down.

The solution was easy, but FINDING the solution was hard so I thought I’d blog it here.

Pull down the “Virtual Machine” meny

Fsion-ShutDown-Guest

Hold down the “Option Key”

Fusion-Power-Off

Now just choose “Power Down”

I’M NOW UP AND RUNNIG AGAIN !
