Keyboard freeze

Reported by: angelo.lopez1967@… Owned by:

Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows


I use VB 2.0.2 on Windows Vista Host. I have created 2 VM, one with XP Pro and the other with Ubuntu 8.0.4. I have this problem:

When the VM lose the focus, then if I click on the VM the keyboard doesn't works more.

To re-use the keyboard:

1) I must click on a menu of VirtualBox 2) I must scroll the menu voices with the keyboard cursor keys 3) Finally the keyboard works again.

But sometimes this solution doesn't works and I must restart the VM.

Thanks and regards. Angelo

I can confirm the following case on two different computers (Win Xp SP2 and Win XP SP1 x64). Solution is to alt tab to different windows and then go back to virtualbox. This happens quite a few times when using guest for a few hours with a lot of switching between host and guest. Mouse does work regardless (with or without Guest Additions). I have this issue when using Ubuntu (8.04 or 8.10) as guest. Using 2.0.4 and 2.0.2.
