Why is my MacBook screenlocking on unlocking?

My newly obtained MacBook has a minor but annoying behaviour. I have it set up to lock when the display goes to sleep. But when I unlock it, it relocks again. What gives?

Tech specs: mid-2012 MacBook Pro (refurb), running Mountain Lion.
The exact symptoms are:
- MacBook is asleep, I wake it up and get the enter password screen. THEN
- EITHER The Mac stays busy for a minute or two so I can't enter the password and then goes back to sleep
- OR I enter the password, get to the desktop, start to do something and the Mac goes to sleep
- I wake up the Mac again, enter my password and all is fine
This does not happen every time but seems to happen only when it's running on battery, not the power cable. Looking for advice on another forum, someone else had exactly the same problem and had a suggestion it was to do with Fusion. I do have Fusion installed but have never used it on this machine. (I did use it on my previous laptop and ported everything to the current one via a Time Machine backup.)
