    If I boot into a Bootcamped Vista via Parallels, what will happen if I close the lid on my MacBook Pro and it goes to sleep? Will it damage my Bootcamp Partition?

    It shouldn't, but the best option is to "Pause" your virtual machine in parallels - this will let the system sleep a in a more stable manner, in my experience.

    I am pretty sure that you can't pause or sleep a bootcamp partition that's running in Parallels. Parallels will prompt you to shut it all the way down.

    You can pause it, but can we get confirmation that this "will let the system sleep in a more stable manner"?
