    About two days ago my VM started spontaneously switching from coherence to window mode. I wasn't working with any applications, it was just sitting there in coherence. I don't get any error message. Each time it happens i switch it back to coherence and it will stay there for a while but at some point it switches back to window mode. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit guest OS on Mac OSX 10.6.7. I have the latest Parallels Desktop and tools installed.

    Has anyone seen this behavior or have any suggestions?

    Yes I too have this problem. It's driving me nuts as I have my windows arranged and sized accordingly over my laptop and an external monitor.

    Any luck resolving this yet?

    Please let us know what is happening and how to correct this issue!
    I haven't seen any responses to these issues on this forum from support - just more and more people complaining.

    I have a newer 13" MacBook Pro and parallels with Windows 7
    ... this dropping out of Coherence is unacceptable!
