    I virtualize Linux under Lion with VirtualBox, and I use it's (Lion) fullscreen mode. Two questions:

    1. How do I prevent the top menu from sliding down when the cursor is in the top of the screen under fullscreen mode?

    2. I often hit the cmd by mistake and shuts the VM off, How do I prevent the cmd button from invoking some action in OSX when in a VM?

    There's nothing you can do about the menu bar. However, you CAN change the "Host Key" in VirtualBox's preferences. I recommend setting it to Right Command instead of Left Command (the default) if this bothers you.
