Suspend AppVMs?

Is it possible to suspend an AppVM? For example, if I have a work VM and a personal VM, can I suspend the work VM when I’m done with work for the day and resume it the next day? I looked for this in the docs but all I see is “Emergency Pause” and a discussion on github about the dangers of pausing.


Do you mean hibernation (suspend the VM on disk and shut it down)?
If yes then it’s not supported right now:
Consider supporting VM hibernation (xl save/restore) · Issue #2273 · QubesOS/qubes-issues · GitHub

Yeah, I guess I’m not sure what S3 sleep state would translate to in a VM, but that’s kinda what I’m looking for. I believe Citrix supports it, so this is not a limitation with Xen, correct?
