You have two ways to Start the Virtual Machine:
You can shut down the VM from the guest operating system as illustrated below:
You can also shut down the VM from the virtual box management GUI. This will issue an ACPI command. It simulates pressing the “power button”.
If you wish to pause a tutorial and continue working later, you can save the current state of the virtual machine. Whenever you open the Virtual Machine next time you will be able continue at the saved state.
You can store the current system state by taking a snapshot. It creates a “checkpoint” to which you can return any time. You can create as many snapshots as you like. You can give name to the snapshots to provide the details like reason or state. This feature can help you in case of failures as you can always go back to the working state if you had stored it earlier.
