I usually save the machine state after login for convenience, but Fedora becomes a completely white screen after restoring and moving the cursor. I cannot use the virtual machine until a forced reset is performed.

Why is that the case, and how can I correct it? I have VirtualBox 4.2.6 with Fedora 18 GNOME (including Guest Additions) on Windows 7 64-bit. I've beefed up the default settings, like 128MB Video Memory and 3D Acceleration, but didn't change anything else.

It's me again, this issue seems to be caused by 3D Acceleration. I don't want to disable it, unless there's no performance hit. Really, I expected better, but had to do it myself once again in a Linux community.

How did you come up with 3D acceleration? What logs did you check? It'd be good to know.
