Delay start of VMs

Using the following:

Set this in the /etc/vmware/config file:
autoStart.defaultStartDelay= "180" ��Start delay of 3 Min's
autoStart.defaultStopDelay= "180" ��Stop delay of 3 Min's
Set the start and stop order of the virtual machines in the individual VMs vmx file.

autostart= "poweron"
autostart.order= "10" ��Set VM#1 to 10, VM#2 to 20....etc
autostop.order= "10" ��Set VM#1 to 10, VM#2 to 20....etc

Haven't tested not sure if this means it will start a VM wait 3 minutes and start the next...I'm assuming.
