Since I upgraded to 4.2.6, VirtualBox regularly (but not always) crashes when the host OS wakes up from sleep. This was also reported on the forum ( Random crashes - WinXP 32bit guest since 4.2.6).

Host OS: OS X 10.8.2 Guest OS: Linux 2.6.38 (Fedora 14, 64 bit) Guest additions v4.2.6 installed

Signature of the crash:

Crashed Thread:  4  TIMER

I also get this sometimes when waking from sleep on my 2.0GHz Core Duo MacBook 13" (the original, 32-bit one), running OS X 10.6. I'm running 32-bit Xubuntu 12.10 as guest.

I notice there is an interlacing-like pattern on the VM's display after waking the host system, so apparently VB sees when suspension happens and acts on it. I wonder if it would be possible to make host suspension transparent to VB and the guest, in case that could serve as a workaround.

Unfortunately i can confirm this symptoms.

I have also seen this, although in my case the guest OS had crashed without explanation after wakeup, and VirtualBox showed the VM as "Aborted".

Host: OS X 10.8.2, Guest: Windows XP SP3 with guest additions

Same issue as ticket #11351?

Same issue here on an Early 2011 15" MacBook Pro running OS X 10.8.2 (12C60) and VirtualBox 4.2.6.

However, I've noticed that it only happens after I've awoken the computer in a different network. That is:

  1. Bring up Ubuntu 10.10 in a VM
  2. Close laptop
  3. Open laptop in a different network attaching to a new WiFi - VM is still running.
  4. Close laptop
  5. Open laptop in the original network - VM gone.

As long as I wake up the laptop in the network in which I original attached the VM, it's still there and runs fine.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to duplicate

I'm not sure about #11351 but it's most likely a duplicate of #11444.
