You might want to try installing another window manager, just to check
if it's a Gnome3 issue or a system issue. Fluxbox and Openbox are small
packages with not many dependencies, and they don't come with their own
screensaver. If you use one of those, and your problem goes away, then
we can concentrate on Gnome3 as the culprit. If not, then it is more of
a system-level problem.
With both Fluxbox and Openbox, you right-click on the desktop to get a
menu (which will allow you to log out).
