I experienced the same problem and the cause in my case was that I tried to add something to the /etc/environment file and whatever I added seemed to not want me to log in after I restarted. Solution: When at the login screen press ALT-->F2, login with admin username and password and edit the /etc/environment file and remove what changes you made to it. ...
I found this solution: First: sudo apt-get remove gnome-screensaver Then: sudo killall gnome-screensaver Suspend, resume and you will be direct on the Unity's password promt. Note: in my case, after this "solution", I experienced another issue with my second monitor, but I was able to resolve it soon.
