Screen Saver Priority

I have a small problem which over the long run (years) has become a
nuisance. I never switch off my machine so whenever I approach it I only
need to unlock it (the box is located in a shared office). Unfortunately,
it appears that I need to use a few keystrokes to wake up the machine
first. Otherwise, my input keystrokes (password) get devoured and by the
time the machine wakes up, the password is incomplete (wrong) and needs to
be e-typed if you see what I mean. Because the monitors are in the process
of waking up (CRT's), I cannot tell exactly what is going on for the first
5-7 seconds.

Over the past year or two, I tried changing the screen saver to "blank
screen" and also changed the priority of the screen saver to no avail. Is
there a simple way of just approaching a sleeping machine and enter the
password while the CRT's come back to life? I don't mind disabling
auto-sleep altogether as I don't pay the bill. As already mentioned, this
problem is minute, but if it hits 700 time a year, it is worth resolving.

Thanks in advance,
