Try "ps aux|grep Virtual" or "ps aux|grep VBox".

I also have this problem. I was able to shut down using the command line:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo shutdown -h now

Make sure you've already quit all other applications, because this will stop them without asking whether they've saved anything.

This is a really annoying problem--does anybody have any idea how to fix it?

This is a MAJOR problem with Mavericks!! According to roaring apps, Virtualbox 4.3 is compatible with Mavericks. Someone should correct that grevious error. There are several issues such as the shutdown problem in which the virtual machine hangs the shutdown process and you can't force quit. The virtual machines become inaccessible, issues with trying to delete one, and general bugginess. I wouldn't recommend running VB on Mavericks until this shutdown issue is at least fixed.

Aside from that - it won't quit even if you aren't trying to shutdown. The VM continues to run and it runs up the fans, CPU, etc. This is ridiculous!

I encountered the same issue.

I have an Ubuntu server VM. It has NAT & Host Only networking. Shutting the VM down would lead to the zombie VirtualBoxVM dock icon that prevents shutdown. I eventually tried starting it headless, and the problem goes away. I can start it and shutdown numerous times without the dock icon problem.

I added a Windows 7 VM, and it does NOT cause the same problem. It only uses NAT networking.

I'm only pointing out the networking stuff because it seems like so many others are having problems with that.

Futuretuesday - I think you have hit on something. I have 2 interfaces that are bridged - wifi and ethernet. When I change the first interface to NAT, then the VM shuts down properly. The only issue is I NEED bridged networking.

I have discovered that (at least in my case) it is the host-only interface that is causing the vampire (undead) VM that prevents shutdown. If I enable vboxnet0 on an interface, it happens. If I disable it (no other changes to the VM,) it doesn't happen. I suspect that the new NAT network option may also trigger the problem--that's my next set of testing.

Correction on my previous statement. One of my VMs had a NAT (the new type) configured.
Leaving the regular NAT in all the VMs apparently fixes the problem.

OK, I've now determined that in my case, using a mid-2011 iMac and stock 10.9, a single active hardware network interface (built-in Airport Extreme, en1), running a newly-installed (post-10.9-installation) Xubuntu Linux 12.04 guest with guest additions and all default settings (no changes to the NetworkManager configuration), all network options on the VM work OK except the host-only interface. Any activation of vboxnet0 will cause the vampire VM to appear on shutdown. The NAT, Nat network, bridged, and internal options all allow normal shutdown. This includes the NAT network with IPv6 fully enabled and DHCP enabled. I do have real IPv6 connectivity on the hardware interface, in case it turns out that it matters. The only sharing service enabled in OS X is Remote Login (aka SSH). I wondered if there might be a problem with guests created before the move to 10.9, so I tried the same tests on a pre-existing Xubuntu 13.10 guest, and obtained the same results.

Hopefully this helps somebody out there decipher the problem or at least get a better handle on it.

I can't even restore my VM on Mavericks. I have to re-install VirtualBox each time I reboot my machine. I wish I never updated :-(
