Very slow shutdown VMware Workstation guests

Check out the link below if you encounter slow shutdowns of VMware Workstation guests:

In my case it reduced the shutdown time of Guest OS (on VMware Workstation 9.0) from several minutes to less then 30 seconds.

In a nutshelf:
Close VMware Workstation and add the text below to config.ini

prefvmx.minVmMemPct = "100"
mainMem.useNamedFile = "FALSE"
mainMem.partialLazySave = "FALSE"
mainMem.partialLazyRestore = "FALSE"
