OSx host, Swedish keyboard, win 10 guest wakes up with VK_LWIN depressed on resume

Reported by: Tipo Owned by:

Guest type: Windows Host type: Mac OS X


For a while I have noticed that my Windows 10 guest wakes up after a resume with the keyboard in a weird state.

Today I installed KeyboardStateView.exe on the guest to see what the keyboard state is after a resume, and it seems that the guest wakes up with the left window key depressed. Pressing the left Command key will get it in sync again.

It behaves the same on both my MacBook Pro keyboard and an external Apple USB keyboard, both with Swedish layout.

I have suffered from this for several versions and I can't remember when I first noticed it.

After a reboot of the client the keyboard is not in this weird state, only after a suspend/resume cycle.

After some more experimenting it appears to be caused by pressing the left Command key+Q to suspend the client and quit VBox. The left Command key appears to be mapped as the left Windows key. If I instead use the right Command key+Q, which seems dead in the client, then this does not happen.

Not sure if this is a bug or not
