Ticket #9489 (reopened defect)
Win-XPpro hangs on shutdown
|Reported by:||Perryg||Owned by:|
I believe this issue started after some work was done on the absolute pointer, maybe in regards to some win 98 patching, but don't hold me to it. It is certainly affected in 4.0.12 and newer. It seems that if you try to power down an XP guest and the absolute pointer is activated in the guest settings Windows get all the way to the last and just hangs. You can click the red X and select to power down and it will finish the shutdown. Disabling the absolute pointer solves this. I can pass the guest logs but don't think you need them since the actual defect is known.

Marked as major only because it is a major PITA but you can change it to what ever suites you since there is no just annoying priority.
