    Display issues in Windows 10 guest after returning from sleep mode in Ubuntu 18.10 host

      This display bug is hard to replicate, but I'm running a Windows 10 guest with Ubuntu 18.10 host. After I return the laptop from sleep mode a couple of issues will often occur.


      First, the gnome lock screen doesn't activate and I am free to continue using both the guest and host system without my password - this almost always happens when the virtual machine is in full screen mode.


      Secondly, Windows itself will produce a whirlwind of display issues including missing borders around the windows, missing buttons in programs, etc. It looks like the graphics driver is not properly redrawing everything. I either have to manually restart Windows Explorer or restart Windows completely. Here is a screenshot of one of the problems (but sometimes it looks worse with tearing and missing icons):



      Here's another screenshot that looks worse with the windows settings app open after sleep (without Windows being full screen):
