  • Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac
  • Parallels Desktop 7 for Mac

Symptoms

It is impossible to stop/restart a virtual machine from the Parallels Desktop User Interface because all the buttons are grayed out.

Resolution

  1. On your Mac open the Activity Monitor application from Finder -> Applications -> Utilities and find the following process:

    • In Parallels Desktop 5, 6, and 7

      prl_vm_app
      
    • In Parallels Desktop 8 and 9

      Parallels VM
      

    • In Parallels Desktop 10, the process name equals virtual machine's name:

      alttext

  2. Highlight this process, click Quit Process, and choose the Force Quit Option.

  3. Restart the virtual machine.
