So this doesn't happen every time you switch off the monitor for an hour? 
Then I would guess it is a problem with one of the screen savers. If you 
have set your machine to randomly select a screen saver it might hit one 
which doesn't really work with your machine for some reason. Therefore 
you could select a specific screen saver which does work, e.g. "blank 
screen" which should work with every machine.
