    No login prompt after locking screen

    I locked my company computer last Friday because it had to make some calculations. When I came back on Tuesday and wanted to unlock it, there was only a black screen with my mouse pointer. After pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL the background of the login screen appeared, but not more. No login possibility. I tried to make a remote desktop to it, but became no reaction (unable to connect).
    Are there some other keys or shortcuts than CTRL-ALT-DEL to get a reaction or to get to another prompt?
    EDIT: I didn't mention that I cannot reboot the computer, because I need the data that was calculated.

    I have the same problem on company computer, I have to restart it every time it locks the session in order to have login screen again.

    1. This is the third hit in google search for this problem, so it is relevant and actual.

    2. A friend had (well still has, all the time) this problem. A workaround is to put the PC to sleep and wake it up again. The the login works normally. I don't remember how he made the PC to sleep. Maybe the power/sleep options were displayed on the screen. Maybe the power button was configured to make the PC sleep (instead of shutdown). Or maybe he closed the display lid (it was a laptop).

    3. A real solution is still welcome...
