    Hi, After the power settings turn of my screen for example, or after stopping
    the screen saver, it often happens (but not always) that the "Locking your
    computer screen" appears and stays for more than 5 minutes before the login
    screen shows up (without any reaction to inputs). The "Resuming your
    computer" screen after resuming from hibernation also stays for such a long
    time. Does anyone have a hint on how to stop (control) this ?

    Check Control Panel> Power Options> (left side) Require a password on
    wakeup. Is "Require a password" checked?

    Hope this helps,
