I'm using Fedora 26, I had to install NetworkManager-openconnect-gnome for a CIsco AnyCOnnect connection.

I solved the issue by installing official proprietary drivers from NVIDIA, following this link:

Now everything works like a charm, Wayland desktop is perfect, gaming is ok, I can enable 3D accel in Virtualbox guests etc. So, it seems the all issue comes down to nouveau free drivers for NVIDIA, in my case.

I have the exact same issue with Fedora 26, with different hardware (Acer desktop, I can post details if useful). The OS sometimes randomly freezes, literally. Screen completely steady, streaming music keeping playing, etc. but nothing to do. Mouse and keyboard are not responding to any command. @Samuel as the user pointed out in the original question and as I confirmed in this comment, if the keyboard is not responding at all, how is it possible to switch to console? I try that of course all the time, I'm a Linux expert and I've never had this. It's not even possible to collect data for debug

2017-06-27 12:32:25 -0500 asked a question Fedora 25 on VirtualBox - mouse offset when 2nd display enabled

I installed Fedora 25 as VirtualBox guest on a Windows 10 host. VirtualBox is at its (currently) latest version (5.1.22). I installed the ExtraPack of VirtualBox and the GuestAdditions in the Fedora guest. On the Windows host 2 screens are connected.

When I use the "default" Gnome environment (Wayland I guess), so just without changing anything at login, whenever I enable the second Virtual Screen on VirtualBox, the mouse is affected by a sort of "offset" in the 1st screen (it clicks ~100 pixels right of where the cursor is), making the environment unusable. The issue disappears as soon as the second Virtual Screen is disabled again.

After some fiddling, I've noticed that if I select "Gnome xOrg" at login, everything works correctly; i can enable and disable the second Virtual Screen as I wish, and it works. I prefer the default Fedora 25 Gnome byfar, though, since it's much smoother and it seems to be faster, even as a VirtualBox guest.

So, at the moment I'm just "solving" the issue by using Gnome with xOrg, but is there any solution to this? Exploring onlone, it seems that it's an issue with the new Fedora desktop environment and other users had the same exact issue and symptoms. Is there either any chance of dealing with this in future Fedora updates?
