Adjust appvm shutdown time


I have an AppVM that has around 200 GB of files. Therefore, when I click “shutdown” this vm, it takes around 3-4 minutes to shutdown. But every 20 seconds a pop-up message appears “it takes too long for the vm to shutdown. Do you want to kill it? (kill/wait)” This is very disturbing to click this pop-up message again and again.

Question: is the shutdown time dependent on the amount of personal files? how to increase this pop-up message timedelta from 20 seconds to for example 5 minutes?

Thank you and happy New Year.

Maybe try increasing shutdown_timeout pref? (The default is 60 secs, not 20 secs, so not sure if it is the right property.)
