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.

What if someone over there also answers you? People will feel like they wasted their time by answering you if someone else already did. I know you didn't mean wrong, but please try to understand that and respect other people's free time for the next time.
