    Never tried Virtual PC but Parallels seems to suspend and resume quite ok on my computer. Guess it depends what you are running it on. Athlon64 3200, 1gb ram here.

    Suspend performance is highly depend of primary OS you are running on. It is rather quick on Linux primary OS and quite slow on Windows.

    Hello ralfix,

    Are the amounts of guest memory of Virtual PC and Parallels Workstation the same? Can you provide any numbers (e.g. it's twice slower or so)?

    This topic will be moved to technical discussions.

    w2k-guest virtual pc:
    memory 256 MB
    hd: 4 gb = 2.988.796 kb( physical)
    suspend 20 sec

    w2k-guest parallels:
    memory 256 MB
