Black Screen-computer crash?

Ok I was playing Starcraft:Broodwar [cat vs mouse ore wars] (map settings). I lost and it said "you have failed victory." I clicked ok and then got a black screen after that for 10min(its not suppose to happen). I don't know what happened and tried ctrl alt delete, the winkey and esc but nothing worked. I pressed sleep and it went to sleep afterwards.

When I "woke" it up, all I got was the magnified version of my desktop icons. I had to power off the cpu, boot the computer back and now it's back to normal again. Right now I'm scanning for any viruses.

So do any of you have a clue on what happened with the black screen and why my computer didn't respond. Please tell me how I can prevent this next time! Thanks.
