    Since moving to parallels 14 and mojave host, I am not able to resume my guest macos vm (high sierra or mojave). It will start to resume, show a black screen with a mouse cursor for a second, and then pause again. I have to force stop the vm and restart it.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Hello KoreyK, Kindly start the virtual machine and go to the top menu bar, click on Actions--> Take snapshot. once the snapshot is done then again click on Actions--> Reset and then check with the Windows virtual machine.

    It did not help. The guest vm still will not recover and gets stuck unpausing.

    It seems to happen only when it automatically pauses when the host goes to sleep.

    The unable to resume a paused macOS VM issue is occurring for me with both my host OS and VM running macOS 10.14.2. It certainly seems like a Parallels bug continuing into Parallels 14.1.0. For now, I'll try disabling sleep in the VM, as others suggested.

    Any updates on this? You did not read the issue correctly, as this is a macOS VM problem.

    Also, I don't seem to be able to tag Parallels people in forum posts with short names, as the Name@Parallels formatting breaks @Name tagging completion.
