    Just what the title says....when i move cursor to the corner, the computer goes to sleep but automatically wakes up 5 seconds later, even when the cursor doesn't move.

    HELP!

    Do you have any programs running in the background?
    A friend of mine experienced the exact same problem with Audio Hijack Pro.

    If your hot corner really is set to "Sleep Display" then your computer won't be sleeping as you're only using it to turn your display off and not sleep the whole computer.

    Did you move the mouse after the display turned black?

    I'm back with a solution for Audio Hijack Pro.
    The screen saver, however is not interrupted by AHP.

    So, using a screen saver that blacks out the screen, is a possible solution:
    You can download it here: http://b-l-a-c-k-o-p.com/BlackenedPixels.html

    Finally, I suggest you assign an Active Screen Corner to start the screen saver.
