Ticket #8128 (closed defect: duplicate)
Guest screen in fullscreen freezes after 10 minutes of inactivity -> duplicate of #8122

Host: Windows XP x64 SP2, VB 4.0.2
Guest: openSUSE 11.3 x64, GA installed, Desktop effects can be turned on or off (reproduced in either case)
I start the virtual machine in fullscreen mode on one of my two monitors and leave it for ~10 minutes untouched. After that the guest machine screen "freezes". That is, it no longer reflects what really happens in the machine, the contents remains frozen. E.g. if a screensaver starts, or some notification appears - nothing of it is shown on the screen, but I can see it happen in the small screenshot in the main VB window.
When in this state I move the mouse cursor into the machine, the whole screen suddenly becomes black, and only mouse cursor is visible, and it takes currect shape when I move it over different parts of the screen (that is, hand over hyperlinks, vertical line over Konsole window, arrow in other places). The machine also reacts to mouse clicks correctly - but again, I can see it only from the small screenshot, the main screen remains black.
When I press Host+F to switch into windowed mode, image of the virtual machine appears and everything returns to normal, until I return into full screen and leave it for another 10 minutes.
