what does it mean when your computer locks up after coming out of screen saver mode. and not right away either, it usually takes about two minutes, but it doesn't matter what i am doing. it happens for anything. but only after i have been in screen saver for at least half an hour. and i do not let it hibernate.

i have the screen save set to blank screen. and i don't even have wall paper.

plus, recently, every so often, the computer will lock up after i get a bunch of green lines across the top of the screen. it closely resembles the green lines that many computers use to indicate volume level, but instead of being on the bottom of the screen, it runs along the top of the screen.

and here is a copy of my hijack log, i don't know if this would help at all.

You problem may be related to power options vs the screensaver. You said the time factor was 1/2 hour. Have a look in your Start\Settings\Control Panel\Power Options and see if all are set to "Always On" and "Never". I supplied a pic of what mine are currently set at. I also disabled the two "LoadPowerProfile" instances you will find the MSconfig\Start-up Group window. Go to start\run and type in MSconfig and click startup tab. You will find them there.
Note: Power Profiles when active are a neat concept but many times only will work with basic programs running on your system. Once other programs are added they can cause all sorts of unusual events to happen when recovering from stand-by for instance is attempted. You may also want to review what items you have running in background at system startup. Many my not be necessary to run and will start on demand when required.
You can use these two sites for reviewing you MSconfig\startup group. Disable the ones not required to start.

BTW: Your HiJack Log looks OK.
