This is a FAQ.  Two common answers are:

1. You're not being logged off (everything that was running is still
running), the terminal is just locked, and entering the password at the
prompt unlocks it.

2. That one of the screensavers is crashing X.  Change your preferences
to not use the last one, or not pick random ones.

If that doesn't resolve it, write back to the list.

[tim at bigblack ~]$ rm -rfd /*^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Huname -ipr
2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 i686 i386

Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.  Today, it's FC7.
