When I come back to my sleeping iMac and move the mouse, the screen is black, but as I start to move the mouse about, it's like I'm kind of rubbing out (like a pencil eraser) the screen with 1cm squares and underneath is the normal grey login screen.  I have to rub out enough so that I can see my username, then click on it to get back in.


How do I fix this?  This has happened ever since I upgraded to Lion.  I've redone a clean install with the same result.

iMac 21.5, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
