I've had that problem before, but it has only happened three times and
the most likely cause here was the F@H GPU client crashing the card.

When I returned and couldn't wake the computer up with the mouse and
realized that the computer itself hadn't crashed, I did the memorized 6
keystrokes that reboot a Windows XP computer. Once a restart had begun,
the GPU once again displayed the normal booting sequence.

Lately the problem I've been having is that, while the Display
properties have both the "Blank" screen saver and the monitor shut-off
enabled, the computer fails to start the screen saver or shut-off the
monitor in their allotted time.

I'm using WinXP Pro (SP2) with a ATI HD3850 and v9.1 of the ATI drivers,
with no CCC installed. The monitor is a Samsung 971p.

Sorry, not much to go on.
