No, hitting X will only close the window, it will still be folding away happily in the background. If you want to shut it off, here's what I do:
Click in the vmware window, then do the following commands
sudo shutdown now
::type overclock, then hit enter::
shutdown -h now
That will shut it down gently. If Im in a hurry, I just hit the red square (stop button). It'll shut down in a couple of seconds. Ive been trying that method lately, to see if It will drop units. So far it hasnt for me.
That'll free up the ram, and processor from folding. If you want to start it again, just open vmware again, and hit the green play button, and it'll start just like normal.
