If I leave my Macbook Pro 7,1 updating and come back to it a while later and I press a button to turn the screen saver off, it just has has a black screen a cursor in the corner and nothing else. It hasn't automatically rebooted, I know, because I dual boot and it would've booted into OS X. When this happens I can usually press ctrl+alt+F2 or something and I get a command line prompting me to login but if I try and type nothing appears at the login prompt. The only way I can recover from this is to hold down the power button to turn it off.

Any help would be appreciated.

I dont know why its hanging, however you also have to hold down the FN key. So its FN+Ctrl+Option+F1. That should bring you to one of the virtual terminals.
