Loosing Mouse Control

    I am using Parallels Desktop for Mac on my Macbook Pro and I have noticed that while using another macOS as a Guest OS, I frequently loose control of my mouse/pointer within the VM. I have to either sleep or restart the VM in order to get control back.

    I can't put my finger on exactly what circumstances it happens, but it happens a lot. Typically when I leave the VM and go back into it.

    MacVM is Release version of Sierra 10.12.5 (16F73). Keyboard works fine and mouse outside of VM works fine.

    I'm having the very same problem but with Xubuntu OS as guest.
    The problemas started today, I've tried video.hw_pointer=2, and devices.usb.mouse=0, and nothing.

    The ONLY way is to change VIEW MODES, back to normal, and back to FULL fix it for while until we switch to another application.

    I'm using a trila version, wondering If I will be able to roll back to my previous Parallelas version which did give me such a problem.

    Parallels Version 13.2.0 (43213) (trial at this time)
    Macbook Pro 17/mid 2009 old but alive and kicking without this problem with Parallles 10
