Hold down the right <alt> key and move the mouse out of the window. Better still, install Guest Additions in your guest OS.

My terminology was not quite correct (thinking of other VM software) - it's called Virtual PC Additions. Have a look at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/824561 . This article doesn't list 2008, but I hope that Virtual PC now has additions for that also.

The additions not only make things easier (the mouse will just move between sessions) but should also improve the performance of the guest OS.
