Win 7 x86 Ultimate guest freezes if idle for about 20 min

Description

I upgraded (uninstalled and reinstalled) from VB 3.2.12 to 4.0.0 without changing any settings on my guest VM's. Windows 7 guests freeze after being idle for about 20 mins on both Windows 7 64bit and XP hosts. There was also increase in the CPU utilization for those session processes.

I also have Linux and Solaris 10 guests that do not exhibit the same behaviour.

I tried pause and resume to no avail. I tried both 3.2.12 and 4.0.0 versions of the Windows Guest additions. Had to go back to VB3.2.12

Could this be the power management of the Windows guest? Does this also happen if you increase the time after when Windows attempt to go into standby?

Frank,

I checked the power management settings in all of the VM's we are running and every standby feature is disabled so I do not think that is the problem.

Seems like I narrowed it down to the Power service on the Windows 7 guest; for some reason it was disabled and so I could not manage the power settings on the guest. Once I enabled and I set everyting to "Never" I have seen no issues/lockups on the guest Weird that I did not see the same issue on VB 3.2.12

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

I will close this as duplicate of #8008. Described there are also some instructions (VBoxManage setextradata ...) which could make this problem go away without changing the guest power management settings.
