I have been looking at VMWare APIs a bit in the last weeks.
There is no support right now. I am tempted to access VMWare by
using the WEB service API (not the VIX one, I'm not sure it
would be able to connect remotely to a standard ESX).
The API is a bit complex (I'm certainly biased though)
and I'm not yet able to list to resources from C code. But
once you have a handle to the right VM it looks relatively easy
to get status and power on/off assuming the rights to do so.
