    Hi, could you please share more info with us? You cannot set your VM to sleep? Or your Mac hangs when you trying to turn it to sleep mode? Looking forward to your reply and also please generate the problem report after the issue reproduced.
    Do not forget to reply us back with the report's ID

    I am running Parallels Desktop 11 on Catalina, and everything is working as normal with just one exception - when I choose 'coherence' view, a window opens as normal but it is just plain grey. If I go back to 'fullscreen' view then all is perfect :)

    Running the latest version of Parallels and Catalina 10.15 beta 3. When I launch one of my VMs, the host computer (iMac Pro) shuts off after a few seconds.

    Sorry if posting to the wrong thread, but it seems most of the request related to Catalina.

    I am using Parallels desktop 14.1.2 (45479) with public beta of Catalina .
    FYI, encountered this bug during update to most recent update 10.15 Beta (19A512f):
    https://forums.developer.apple.com/thread/117857
    Deleting logs solved the problem.

    Also, if there change to obtain beta builds to restore broken shared desktop / folders functionality?

    I would like to know if a new version of parallels is being developed to support the new version of MacOS, because even apple releasing new versions, I see no evolutions on the page https://kb.parallels.com/en/124705

    For the time being. I disabled Desktop and Documents in the Shared Profile settings. Than manually mapped Desktop and Documents in the Custom Folders settings. Then changed the location of the Desktop and Documents in Windows 10 to \\Mac\Desktop and \\Mac\Documents (In Explorer. Just right-click Properties on Desktop or Documents. Then Location). It's a few extra steps but it works!

    So I upgraded to Parallels 15 today since it said it was Catalina ready and I still have the error with shared profiles. I can see why, it's mapped to \\Mac\\Home\\Desktop and since I have iCloud Drive turned on my Desktop is not there. When I try to go in and remap it I get a permission denied error. Any help to get your "Catalina Ready" software to actually work with Catalina?

    So support just responded to my request as to why shared profiles don't work with Catalina, even though Parallels 15 is specifically promoted as Catalina Ready. Essentially he says yeah it doesn't work, but we hope it will work in the future.

    Thank you for contacting Parallels Support.

    This email is regarding the issue you have reported that you are unable to share files between mac and Windows virtual machine.

    We have escalated the issue you reported to the Engineering Team and they are working to address it in one of the future builds of Parallels Desktop for Mac.

    To enable automatic updates, from the Parallels Desktop Menu, select Preferences > General > Download Updates Automatically.

    We will create a new ticket should we have an update or more questions for you.

    Thanks for reporting this problem - though honest feedback, good or bad, we are able to provide better products and services to all members of the Parallels Community.

    I installed Catalina on Parallel15 running in MBP2016 with Mojave. I'm able to start the OS but it doesn't detect the trackpad, and as it has already been mentioned, I cannot move the windows.. The driver detects standard click and right click (two fingers) but I cannot move any window, so its completely useless....

    Updated Parallels tools, restarted the OS, but the problem is still there.

    I had a functioning Catalina beta 5 VM with PD 14 (latest version).
    After upgrading to PD 15, as soon as PD 15 tools are installed and the system reboots, Catalina fails to startup, hanging at a black screen with a white Apple Logo. I've reverted to a snapshot a couple of times, and retried, but the result is always the same.
