    I have recently notice that after coming back to my mini M1 (say after lunch) and the screensaver has kicked in (machine is not sleeping), I am unable to type anything into the VM - as if there is no keyboard connected.

    I also note that (as I use Streamdeck with shortcuts depending on which Mac or Windows app has focus), Streamdeck does not 'recognise' any Windows app that gets focus. The mouse works normally within Windows.

    If I exit Coherence, it works. If I enter Coherence, it works for about 2-3 minutes, then the same again. It definitely does not happen after each time the screensaver kicks in, usually only after lunch.

    Any ideas? Running Monterey Beta 7 and Parallels 17.0.1, Windows 11 22000.194 (21H2)

    Any solution for this issue?
    I'm running Monterey 12.3.1 (not any beta version), parallels 17.1.2 (the latest version) and Windows 10 Pro.

    If you're running Windows 10 ARM we recommend you to update to Windows 11 and check if the issue still persists. If you're running Windows 11 and still facing the issue then let us know.
