CentOS 8 guest in Hyper-V: mouse clicks not recognized but keyboard works

I’m running a CentOS 8 guest on Hyper-V in Windows 10. When I boot the virtual machine everything seems fine for a while. However, eventually the system stops recognizing mouse clicks. The mouse movement seems to be fine and I can switch to another virtual terminal and login, but clicking doesn’t do anything. I have a CentOS 7 guest on the same machine with no such problem. I’ve been searching but most of what I find online concerns other virtual machine environments or older versions of CentOS. How can I get to the bottom of this?
