computer freezes after waking it up, sleep

I have Windows 7 Ultimate running on my computer. There's only one little problem. Sometimes when I leave my computer, I come back and my laptop screen turned off or dim, whichever it is. This is fine, I set it to do this. However, after moving the mouse around, the mouse cursor freezes; both the keyboard and mouse don't respond to anything, for example the keyboard's windows key won't bring up the start menu and moving the mouse shows busy icon. I have to wait about a minute or two before things start working again

I googled and found similar problems, none answered. wondering if you could. there has to be an answer
