log on screen appears after random periodes of inactivity

i would leave a laptop i have over night and use it the very next morning without having to loggon to it again , interesting enough when i leave it unattended often i get the loggon screen showing at random times - knowing that i do not get logged out from account - when left unattended , here are the steps i checked to insure i am not being hacked :
1 - avg internet security business edition 2012
2 - screen saver is checked where it would not put log in screen back on resume
3 - checking that allow remote assistance and remote desktop disabled
and yet i still get this random event , any thoughts to how it might be generated or what to check ?
