    I have had the same problem since OS X 10.9.2. Maddening. My Report ID just submitted is 46502468.

    So, I am very interested in knowing why this post has essentially stopped. I am in the middle of Parallels doing trial-and-error testing every few days - without success. Have any of you received a true fix? TIA.

    Come in Parallels...come in Parallels....hiss, crackle....is anyone there?....

    It would be nice to hear from you on this problem, even if it's only a courtesy reply to say you're looking into it. Right now, we've spent a lot of money on your product and all it's doing in return is ruining our battery life. Maintaining radio silence is no way to look after your customers.
     
  6. Hello Jeff,

    Parallels Development team is indeed working on the resolution for this behavior. We cannot provide you with any ETA, but the resolution will be delivered asap. As a workaround we recommend you a) to suspend VM prior to putting Mac to sleep; b) to disable PowerNap feature setting on Mac: Choose 'System Preferences' from the 'Apple' menu > Click 'Energy Saver' > Click the 'Battery' tab and then uncheck the option "Enable Power Nap while on battery power".

    For all users who experience (and experienced) this behavior, we are truly looking forward for your comprehension and apologize for all inconveniences caused.

    It's been 5 years and I have been having this problem with PD 15.1.2 (latest). Please let know what the status of this issue is.
    Thank you.

    Oh, it looks like mine problem too (described in different topic). Computer is going "sleep", but still draining power and running funs. I have logs from pmset of two suspend tries - one success, with PD & VM not running, and another few minutes earlier with running PD & VM, when computer not entered full sleep mode after closing lid. Do You want to see them both, PD developers?
