After you resume a virtual machine and do additional work in the virtual machine, you cannot return to the state the virtual machine was in at the time you suspended. To preserve the state of the virtual machine so you can return to the same state repeatedly, take a snapshot.

1

Start the vSphere Client and display the virtual machine in the inventory.

2

Do one of the following:

Select the virtual machine and click Power On in toolbar.

Right-click the virtual machine and select Power On in the context menu.

Select the virtual machine and in the Summary tab Commands window, select Power On.

Applications you were running at the time you suspended the virtual machine are running and the content is the same as it was when you suspended the virtual machine.
