Screen saver is set to "none"
I'm about to remove the password from my login account altogether, just to get rid of this annoyance.
Is there something else that could be causing this behavior? Because I am at wit's end with this issue. The only band-aid I have is to run the Caffeine utility to prevent the system from sleeping.
Here is something to try.
Create a new user account, and then try doing what you stated above to that user account and test it.
If it holds, corrupt profile is the answer. Otherwise, I would suggest running a sfc /scannow from a command prompt.
