    I'm running Win 7 Enterprise 64-bit and have installed Server 2008 on a VMware virtual machine. After closing the VM, Win 7 keyboard shortcuts are disabled. After a reboot, all is well. Has anyone else seen this behavior? Is there a fix, short of a reboot?

    "After closing the VM, Win 7 keyboard shortcuts are disabled."

    Before you can safely shut down VMware, or any other Virtual Machine, you must shut down all running Operating Systems, FIRST.

    Just like you would if your Windows weren't running inside a VM. Shutting down a VM, while OSes are still running, is exactly the same as pulling the AC plug out of the wall on a REAL computer!
