That can sometimes happen if a screensaver "kicks in" first, followed by power-saving mode. Usually only happens with third-party screensavers, although on XP it can also happen with the built-in screensavers to. If you set a screensaver it's best not to set any power-saving features. Conversely, if you set power-saving features don't set a screensaver. The two can sometimes conflict with each other.
Try one of these:
Press the <Enter> key.
Turn off the PC by pressing and holding the power-on button for 5 seconds, release button when it turns off. Now press to turn it on again.
