Comment 4 Marcus West 2013-12-21 23:20:24 EST
all looks good, except 8.9.2. (Using a Snapshot to Restore a Virtual Machine):

  5. Start the virtual machine and it will run with the disk image of the snapshot.
  6. Click Commit to permanently restore the virtual machine to the condition of the snapshot. Any subsequent snapshots are erased. 

The 'Commit' (and 'Undo') buttons are not available unless the vm is shut down.  Is this implied, or should it be a specified step?

Customers may want to 'Preview' their VM to check, then just click 'Commit' to keep running, without restarting again...
