That kind of sounds like your computer is starting up believing that
there are two monitors attached (and that login should be happening on
the *other* one), but sleep and wake properly resets the detection.

I could be completely wrong, of course, but seeing the login background
without the prompt is what happens to me when I boot my laptop attached
to the monitor but forget to have the monitor tuned to the right
input :)
