Random lock up

Ok, i didn't know where to put this, so please move it mods if you have to.

The problem is that after i pull the system out of screensaver it locks up.
Usually i can see the mouse cursor and move it round, but other than that it is unresponsive.
I usually have to wait from any where between 1-5 minutes before it responds, that is pressing the windows key quite a few times.
Or i just give up and hard reset.

Any help?

Update: After trolling the internet, several trips to google translate, i still am clueless as to what the problem is.

HALP!

Ok guys, I think i have solved the problem.

Before i just had the display shut off after 15 mins, no use of the screen saver.
I changed the setting to make a screensaver come on. I just turn the monitor off when im not using it now.

Edit: Mods please mark thread as done.
