Windows 7: XP Mode wont shut itself down after app closed

XP Mode wont shut itself down after app closed

little help please guys if youd be so kind, just installed XP mode as i now dont need Hardware virtualization (yay!) from my initial tests it seems that although the machine is set to "shutdown on close" it doesnt free the resources when I close an xp mode application launched straight from the Windows 7 desktop unless I open the VM again and then close that window, or hit CTRL-ALT-END while the XP mode app is still running and select shutdown from there

anyone know a way around this?

My XP Mode is set to hibernate on close, so I can't really comment on that... But I noticed that the VM will run for about 5 minutes after you close an XP application. Close your VM, open up the Task Manager and watch vpc.exe to see what it does after 5 min or so.
