    When starting my Bootcamp Windows VM (using Beta 2), I have to provide an admin's login twice. When stopping the VM, I have to provide the login once more. This is probably due to the fact that I use a non-admin user for my usual work. Parallels seems to unmount and re-mount the Bootcamp partition, doesn't it?

    Is there a way to avoid the logins? Like leaving the Bootcamp partition unmounted from Mac OS? Or allowing Parallels to retrieve the login data from the keychain?

    It's not a bug, but it's annoying.

    Also, I second the request to (optionally) automatically shutdown Windows when Parallels is quit.

    And one more thing: your product is amazing. It is great fun watching Windows users' reactions when I show them Windows under Parallels Coherence mode. Apple should start a Parallels share options program immediately, since this will probably turn out to be the #1 killer application on all new Intel Macs!
