I switch from a virtual machine to the host machine using host key then pressing Alt-tab, but when I switch back to the virtual machine, I am forced to click with a mouse to take the control back. Is there an option or a key that will let me switch to vm without having to use my mouse?

Note: I want to do this without VM grabbing my mouse.

Try using cntrl-g to capture keyboard input and cntrl-a to release the keyboard.
