Question Fedora VM shuts itself down automatically

I have an F20 VM running on VMWare player. When I leave my (windows) machine for a while, I come back to find out my VM has gone away. I can reproduce the exact symptoms by bringing up the VM and entering 'shutdown now' at the terminal prompt.

Why is this happening? How do I stop it?
