    I feel like any issue I have with Parallels involves this Toolbox function. I just want to run Windows, transfer files between OS, and share peripherals (including LAN). All the stuff found in Toolbox is fluff to me (Personally, I can't imagine why this even exists. Do people use Download Audio??).

    My biggest issue at this time is that Windows keeps going to sleep. From what I've found, this is related to Energy Saver in Toolbox. Regardless of what I do, it keeps putting Windows to sleep (which is a huge issue for me). I don't really need a fix for this as I rather just dente the entire program if I don't need it.

    Can I uninstall Toolbox and still run Desktop? What are the ramifications of doing so? Also, is there Toolbox for Mac and Toolbox for Windows both running on my computer? If I quit Toolbox on my Mac, I still see Toolbox on my Windows VM. Should I / Can I delete that as well?

    Forgot to mention I'm using Parallels 15 for Mac Pro Edition.

    Hello,

    Could you please clarify why have you decided that Energy Saver tool is related to your issue?

    Sure, you can stop using Toolbox and uninstall it completely if you want.
    If you're talking of Toolbox for Windows inside Windows 10 then you can easily uninstall it via standard Windows way.
    If you're talking of Toolbox for Mac then quit from it and remove Parallels Toolbox application from Applications.

    Is there a way to turn off the notifications to install Parallels Toolbox since I don't use it? I'm on a Mac using Parallels to run a couple Windows 10 apps. I've deleted it from my Mac since the reminders were annoying, but the reminders happen about every other time I run Parallels.

    Hello,

    Yes, you can check 'Do not show again' option in appropriate suggestion dialog on the left bottom corner:
