VM always starts suspended

I have OPNSense running in a virtual machine in proxmox 6.04. Whenever the host is rebooted, the guest is in a paused state and doesn't boot.
I haven't set "Freeze CPU at startup" and I can't see any other suspicious options. Console shows "Guest has not initialized the display (yet)."
Hitting "resume" causes it to boot up and work normally. Any ideas?

Do you happen to have the "Freeze CPU on startup" option of the VM enabled?
If not please post the output of the command
qm config <vmid>
Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I gave up and deleted the VM and started again :(
