I will add to this today as well. Latest update and my computer was
useless unless I killed the full session.
I didn't get anything by typing but I was in to much stress to even
think about that. I will try that tomorrow as this is a work computer.
My problem seems to occur if the system has gone into sleep mode.
I set up a test account for testing a raw, clean account to see if it
was related to an old configuration file that I have ran into in the past.
KDE is falling apart since going to plasma and F25 has been good most of
the time until these black screens have started.
I won't be updating a few machines until I know that this isn't going to
happen on a regular basis.
Note, this has happened on F24 in the past week as well.

This is definitely a kernel issue from what I am reading.
Ian, your suggestion to type in "kstart kwin --replace" worked if I had
a konsole open.
Anything I typed was associated with the last application open.
