Open virtual machine folder. By default, it is located in %username%\Virtual Machines folder or you can select the Windows Virtual PC program from the Start menu.
Right click the virtual machine shell file (vmcx) and select Settings
Then you will see the configuration details in the Virtual PC Settings window.
Shutdown Virtual Machine
By default, when you close the application, the Virtual Machine will go in the Hibernate state.
