Is this a duplicate of https://feedback.azure.com/forums/216843-virtual-machines/suggestions/13914840-ability-to-hibernate-vms-to-support-devtest-workfl#comments ? I have voted and commented there, but this feature is essential for migrating a developer machine to Azure.

I would love to move to using an Azure development machine. I frequently work remotely and it would be highly beneficial to access my desktop directly via Azure rather than going through the office network. However my work involves interaction between several different applications, following highly complex workflows. Having to reboot and start from scratch every morning is therefore a non-starter. The ability to hibernate the VM is essential to migrating my main development to Azure, so this feature would be greatly appreciated.
