    I just gotten my iMac 27", running snow leopard. I installed VMware Fusion 3 and Window 7.

    Now I wanted to play Warcraft 3 (DOTA) on VMware Fusion. I need the mouse to be locked in the VMware window, not automatically leave and pointing to other Mac apps.

    I searched the Help, it says can use "G+command" button to lock it. No success. The command "control+command" will make the mouse cursor leave the VM environment, but "G+command" just doesn't work.

    Anyone can advise?

    Are you pressing G before the :apple: key? That won't work - you need to press and hold :apple: first, then push G.

    Yes, press and hold :apple: then G.

    When I move the mouse from anywhere outside the VMware window and did that, the mouse colour changed, means it was already operating in VM enviornment. But still, you could move the mouse cursor outside the VMware window without pressing Control + :apple:.

    I want the mouse cursor to stay inside the VMware window no matter how I move the mouse, unless I press Control + :apple:.

    The easiest way to do that is turning mouse pointer integration off. There should be some sort of VMware Tools configuration somewhere - probably in the start menu of Windows. Check there.
