To my experience the mate-screensaver "Unlock Screen" dialog always  
appears on the monitor / screen where the mouse pointer was left.

for debugging: If you move the mouse over to the notebook's screen,  
can you then normally unlock your session?

We won't probably get this fixed for Debian jessie (unless too many  
people find this too annoying), we will rather have to hand it over to  
MATE upstream and expect help from there.
