problem with mouse when using workstation 7.x in fullscreen mode

hello, I have an issue I cant seem to find the answer to anywhere. A customer of mine has a laptop and is running windows xp inside of vmware workstation. if we use full screen mode, left mouse clicks are very slow and it pretty much stops you from double clicking anything. if we run in  management mode, where you can see all of the toolbars, we dont have any issue with the mouse at all. I have tried turning off 3d acceleration, but that didnt help. Weird problem considering the vmware technote that I found said to run in full screen for maximum performance!
