I get the reasonning, but when I click on "Stop" it's usually on purpose :)
I know I'm pulling the virtual cord out, if I use that button it's because
the machine is in a state requering that (failing to boot for example, or
kernel panic, something like that).

It shouldn't be something usual, but unfortunatly at least for us the only
time we actually use the GUI is to install new VMs or repair a broken one,
and for that you need to restart it, tweak the hardware ..

Could you maybe have the Stop button work as expected, but "hide" it in a menu
or something for HA enabled VMs ? That would be fine. Or just put a warning
on the confirmation box maybe ?
