Windows 2000 Virtual Machine Stops at "Safe to turn off computer" Screen (1006)
In this situation, the virtual machine is not receiving a command to power off, and the Windows command to power off is not working properly.
To work around this problem, add the following line to the configuration file (.vmx) of the virtual machine:
gui.exitOnCLIHLT = TRUE
This line causes the virtual machine to power off automatically when you choose Start > Shut Down from the Windows guest.
