When I log into my mac after it has been asleep for a while the screen will be black. As I move the mouse it starts to reveal the screen whereever my mouse is. I can find my name, enter my password and then I can see the whole screen. But then it sends me to a second login screen where I don't have the option of selecting other users.


(I have also set my computer to not sleep, so perhaps it is the screen turning off which causes this double login, not sleep mode...)


Why is this happening? It was doing that on my macbook, but then I migrated my info using the migration asistant to a new iMac and the problem persists.



Any help would be appreciated!




Apple Macbook - Unibody, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Also Windows 7 32bit installed via bootcamp
