  • Ticket #8267 – Description

    initial v5  
    1 I'm encountering issues identical to [http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/2836 Bug #2836] on my MacBook Pro running MacOS X 10.6. The clock of my Windows 7 guest would freeze every now and then (about 30-60 seconds) for about 10 seconds, and then resume. The guest OS would not freeze itself and stay mostly responsive but anything related to time elapsing would get stuck, like the clock gadget, resource monitors and the most annoying, any kind of animations. Any solutions posted for similar problem does not seem to do anything (or much). A consequence of the problem is that the time will appear to run slow (I originally thought this was the problem and not an effect)

    33One way I managed to mitigate the symptoms was to disable animations in the OS. However a lot of applications still rely on the clock time running, and will appear stuck / frozen but are in fact mostly responsive to input.
