Hi guys,

How could we close GUI session in virtual box without shutting down the virtual machine. I have a lot of Linux instances I only need to connect to one of them.

Don't open a GUI session in the first place, use the headless version of VirtualBox:

Otherwise, when you close your session, you close all the programs you were running inside, including the hypervisor.

Note: Asking the exact same copy-pasted question in (at least) two different help communities is not extremely respectful of the volunteers giving away some of their free time to help you.
