Virtualbox incompatible with laptop power saving modes in Vista

Description (last modified by Frank Mehnert)

I have a Lenovo X61 tablet with Dell's Vista Ultimate 32bit. The only particular thing about its configuration is that i have the Windows XP graphics card driver installed, and the latest beta of Villagetronic's VTBook drivers for Windows Vista installed (see sitemap, "beta download", username betatest password testbeta for that). The machine works perfectly. I run the version of Virtualbox you had as default download on your web page 10 days ago.

I run latest Debian Etch (that's Linux kernel 2.6 right?) on it.

Two bugs:

  1. When I run the machine in "Balanced" or "Power saver" mode and start my Linux virtual machine, my entire laptop crashes. The only messages i get is a partial boot in the virtualbox window, and in some instances it pops up strange DMA errors for the virtual harddrive - mostly timeouts, and once it reported a broken sector.
  1. When I hibernate the laptop while Virtualbox is running during evening, in the morning when I start the laptop, it says the laptop has recovered from a bluescreen.

Please fix these errors, as they might make users loose data!

Would you be so kind to fix this?

Hi guys! When will you look at this?

This could eat so much unsaved work for me and other people that.. I think it should be fixed .. uu... now. :)

What do you think about this error?

Indeed I see too that it regards some really tricky aspects of Windows app development.

Next time please open separate bug reports for separate defects! I will rename that report to reflect the first problem only. Feel free to open another bug report for the second problem.

Please attach the VBox.log file of the partially bootet VM session.
