This is definitely doable, but would likely require some additional
programming to write the extension to do it.  I also wouldn't try to use
vmware-cmd - VMware has pretty good documentation for their APIs, so it
should be possible to trigger the correct API call to resume/start a VM
upon login and stop/suspend it upon log out.

You'd need to write a custom extension to do it.
