I'm running VMware Workstation and I'm finding that the program is not grabbing mouse inputs on click or on Ctrl+G input, both options are set to on in preferences.

If I manually connect either the mouse or keyboard to the VM (I.e. Connect (Disconnect From host)) it works fine, but obviously this isn't very convenient and I can only connect either the mouse or keyboard at a time.

Any ideas how I can get this to work? I know that VMware should be able to grab mouse inputs on click and that I should be able to grab focus back from the VM with ctrl+alt I just can't get it to work!
