[CentOS] screensaver: waiting for darkness

I'm using the default desktop for CentOS 6.
My screensaver is set for blank, 5 min, no locking.
In the seconds during which the screen fades to black,
I cannot make it come back.
Neither the keyboard nor moving and clicking the mouse has any affect.
Until the screen goes black, I cannot do anything with the computer.
How, if at all, can I change that?
