    I've been randomly getting kicked out to the login screen.

    I have to log back in and then the programs start or already are up.
    whats going on with this?

    it happened about 5 times so far

    Try changing the settings in preferences in security and privacy. Uncheck "require password for sleep and screen saver" and also go to login option in user and groups and make sure you have automatic login setup for your username.

    Restart and see if it still happens. If it still occurs I would do a reinstall of lion. Hold down cmd+r on boot, erase the ssd and install lion.

    it usually only happens when the computer is doing intensive tasks. I'm also using the computer when it happens (its not idle )

    It hasn't happened to me. What program(s) does it happen during?

    I've gotten it a few times - getting logged out and then logged in again. Hasn't happened again in like a week though.
