Auto Start/Stop VMware Workstation Virtual Machines

All my servers are running on VMware Worstation virtual machines. Virtual machines have the advantages of easy management and ability of restoring to earlier snapshots, which are quite valuable during development.
Some of my virtual machines need to be running all the time when the physical computer is on. VMware Workstation provides an AutoStart feature to allow shared virtual machines to automatically start during the host system boot-up. However, the built-in AutoStart feature turns out to have limitations which make it useless for my situation.
