I was trying to figure out if there was a way of performing an "xm save" that 
left the domain paused, rather than running or 'saved'. The reason for this is 
so that a I can take a snapshot of the LVM providing storage and I can back-up 
the state save file along with the snapshot. I realise I could do an xm save 
followed by a restore, but it this will introduce unnecessary delay as it 
reloads the state, esp if DomU uses a lot of memory.

Is there anyway to leave a domain paused after an xm save or any other way of 
solving my problem neatly?

Thanks in advance,
