Why does a Windows 7 VM suspend itself ?

Check inside the guest if the powerplan for the Windows 7 is set to set the system to sleep after a specified time.

Open Controlpanel > Hardware > Power Options > Change when the computer sleeps

On that page set "Put the computer to sleep" to "Never"

I installed the evaluation version on windows 7 and when I click to open it it comes up as "Not Responding" when it does finally respond I cannot get the Backtrack 5 to install. I go through all the steps and everything seems to be fine but it does not show up in the computer tab for me to open it.
