Unresponsive Playbook

I have installed VMWare Fusion and loaded up the virtual Playbook, however from here nothing is responsive. I can't click on the gear in the upper right corner or on anything else. The mouse is moving the cursor within Playbook, but when I click on anything it isn't responding.


Any suggestions? And I have tried closing and reopening the program and suspending/unsuspending. Is there some way of rebooting it that I haven't found?





(I posted this in the app world developer forum before I noticed there was this forum here, so ignore the other one if you come across it)

Re: Unresponsive Playbook

Re: Unresponsive Playbook

Yeah, I've found that the simulator gets into an unresponsive state often and just resetting the VM solves the problem.
