The Suspend power policy causes virtual machines to be suspended when a user logs off, but not when a user disconnects. You can also configure desktops in a dedicated pool to be suspended when a user disconnects from a desktop without logging off. Using suspend when users disconnect helps to conserve resources.

To enable suspend on disconnect for dedicated desktops, you must set an attribute in View LDAP.
