I just went through this myself running CentOS 6.2 64-bit under a VMware Workstation 8.0.2 host (Windows-7). If your issue is the same as mine, then this is a bug in the VMware Workstation 8.0.2 BIOS.
See the thread at http://communities.vmware.com/thread/391186?tstart=0
In my case, I tried the workaround of changing
vcpu.hotadd = "TRUE"
vcpu.hotadd = "FALSE"
in the VMs .vmx file and this solved my issue.
I was even able to start a nested Guest VM after this.
Alternately (if you don't care about getting nested Virtualization working), I found another way to avoid the shutdown issue. I discovered that I could just disable and stop the libvirt-guest service (from the System/Services panel) to avoid the shutdown issue (before I changed the VMware VMs .vmx file).
