Virtual machines do not shut down gracefully (1008182)
On the Virtual Machine Startup and Shutdown Properties window, select the new virtual machine and click Move Up so that it is listed under Any Order.
Click OK to exit the Properties window.
Click Properties again.
Move the virtual machine back to Manual Startup.
Note: On future host shutdowns, a graceful shutdown of the virtual machine is attempted. This step needs to be performed for every virtual machine that requires a graceful shutdown with the host, but not to start up with the host. The automatic startup settings, and therefore this workaround, do not transfer between hosts, so this procedure may need to be performed again if the virtual machine is vMotioned.
