Keyboard Maestro 8.2.4 “Suspend / Resume Parallels” Macro
This is a super unpolished macro that I made yesterday and have already got tonnes of use out of for switching to and from my Windows 10 instance in Parallels Desktop. Upon pressing the hotkey it resumes the instance which makes the VM grab 2GB of my RAM and then when I'm done with the VM it suspends it again freeing up the RAM. I find this makes running a VM with only 8GB system RAM far more tolerable than having the VM run using the RAM the whole time. It take a short while to resume/suspend but it means I can work far faster in either OS without having to limit my open applications too much to try and conserve RAM.
