That is Ubuntu 11.04 I suppose. To verify, check the menu item
System->About Ubuntu,

or System->Administration->System Monitor->System an tell us.

Regarding the screen issue:

Click to the switch icon on the top right, and go to System Settings.
There go inside Personal area, to Screensaver.

DISABLE the options: "Activate screensaver when computer is idle", and
"Lock Screen when screensaver is active".
