Force vmware Fusion guest to shutdown or restart

problem: VMware Fusion guest is locked up and won't shutdown

You want to force a shutdown/power off OR force a restart/reset

solution: use the alt/option key

Open the Virtual Machine menu and press the key and you will see the menu options change to their alternatives. Choose one of the options, e.g. Power Off
I believe this works from version 2 onwards.
