Can you restore a volume Snapshot of VMs taken without VMware syncronization?

How solid are volume snapshots of VMware VMs taken without the vmware synchronization? Can they be restored if there are a lot of I/Os on the machine? Our problem is that regular VM snapshots in VMware don't work properly due to the high load on the machines.

Yes.  The VM will restart as if the power failed on the server without issues.
