freeze when entering from screensaver

Postby tor2 » 3. May 2019, 11:50

Since updating from 5.2 to 6.0.6, each time I leave the VM for a while and I try to go back and enter again in Win7 guest it freezes. I've attached the log. I hope it helps.
Thanks.

Try disabling the screensaver and hard disk power saving features of the desk. Neither are needed for virtual hardware.

I think disabling screensaver is only a inferior workaround and not a solution.

It shows an inner problem. And it is widening.
I noticed the problem with Mint 18 issues in 6.0.4 myself. Back then Win Guests were still working without problems (for me). See https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=91915 on reports of others.
Now I have problems with windows 10 guests starting from 6.0.6 and 6.0.8 and looks like I am not the only one. So this spreads.
Currently for windows 10 hosts I use 6.0.4 to avoid the problem.

Since this spreads I get more and more reluctant to upgrade but I don't feel safe with 6.0.4 either as there are already problems with the linux guests. It is a sign that something is wrong and getting bigger. Not being addressed to me means that the newer virtualization versions are unreliable (being said in reply to what socratis said in the linked linux problem). I doubt that any effects of freezing to what cause whatsoever don't have any impact on something else.
Hope that this gets addressed in some near future. It is essential for stability in my point of view.

This being said it is just my opinionated answer.
best regards

Why would the devs put any resources into a feature that is pointless in a virtual machine? Just use the inferior workaround.
