        After locking my screen (windows + L) I can log in after a few minutes, but if I leave the computer overnight, I can not display the box to receive my password.  At this, I must power cycle my my computer.  This has started recently.  I have made no changes to settings or installed any software since the computer was working properly.  Any suggestions?
