Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I'm using Virtual Box 3.2.8. with VM Virtual Box Guest Additions under Ubuntu Linux ver. 10.04. Guest OS in this Virtual Box is Windows XP SP3. Now the bug: after certain period of inactivity the guest OS (Windows XP) "looses" the USB keyboard, i.e. one cannot type anything. The keyboard does not respond to any key strokes.
As a workaround I minimize the whole Virtual Box window and then restore it. After this manipulation the keyboard becomes functional again. I reproduced this bug on several keyboards, including a PS/2 keyboard, too.
