saved state

A manner of storing a virtual machine so that it can be quickly resumed, similar to a hibernated laptop. When you place a running virtual machine in a saved state, Virtual Server and Hyper-V stop the virtual machine, write the data that exists in memory to temporary files, and stop the consumption of system resources. Restoring a virtual machine from a saved state returns it to the same condition it was in when its state was saved.
