    Am I the only person who has issues with this sometimes refusing the show the login prompt when it wakes up, leaving you with a black screen? The system is still responsive, but all you can do is move the mouse, since there is no dialog. Does this ever happen to anyone else?

    Also is there any way to clear it aside from power-cycling the machine, or SSH'ing in and doing "killall loginwindow"?

    This has happened to me as well. Had to restart my macbook. I'd like some info too.

    It was happening to me as well, hasn't happened again after reinstalling osx.
