Mouse locking multiple VMs

Postby Dan_the_B » 14. Jun 2021, 19:16

Hi,
Recent installation of Win10 and VBox 6.1.22.
I've used Linux Mint for creating VPNs to customers for ages so I don't have to VPN my entire rig.
Just today it's started locking the VM (i.e. to lock screen, requires password) when I'm moving the mouse around. It does the same if I type quickly.
I've:
Uninstalled Logi Options - rebooted, tried again, reinstalled.
Uninstalled VirtualBox, rebooted, tried again
Used a different keyboard and mouse

Then I tried a fresh install of Linux Mint, an install of Kali Linux and one of Ubuntu.
All Mint installations behave the same.
Kali and Ubuntu is generally fine for 5 minutes or so then the mouse locks up.

Nothing outside of Virtualbox is exhibiting anything unusual.

Please help (I've been an IT engineer for a very long time, so please don't be afraid to suggest anything technical)

I've replicated the issue in VMware Player so it's definitely my rig, not VBox. You can ignore this issue.
