Windows 7: Help With Turning Off "Corner-Making-Screen-Go-To-Log-In" Action

Help With Turning Off "Corner-Making-Screen-Go-To-Log-In" Action

Whenever my cursor is accidentally drug into the corner, the screen suddenly goes blank, then returns to the user log-in screen. It drives me nuts!!! As I remember, this never use to happen. I would like to, somehow, turn this function off, as it is very annoying. I am running Windows 7 Premium Home Edition, 64-bit, on an Acer Aspire laptop.

Any help would be much appreciated!

No, it's the upper, left corner. None of the other corners do anything.

Thanks for your reply!
