You basically have to wait until the energysaver settings turn off the screen. Remember you can have the energysaver shut the screen down well before it puts the system to sleep.

Or you can do what some people do - if the system is plugged in, sleep the display, but don't sleep the system. The main reason to sleep the system is to prevent the battery from totally draining itself.
