ou can find it at ftp.x.org/contrib/applications/xautolock*

We are using xautolock (public domain, make an ftp search for it),
which works good.
You can specify the length of the idle time,
and set it to run a command (script or a progrqam like xlock) if
the user has not touched keyboard or mouse during the idle time period.
It also has a 'quick lock' feature, if the user puts the cursor in the
upper left corner the screen will lock within 5 seconds.
I am starting an xautolock process for each user when they log in,
with the idle time set to 15 minutes. Then I have removed xlock from
the menu and adviced users to put the cursor in the upper left corner
if they want to lock quicker - going for lunch etc.
This way xlock is always under control of xautolock,
I found that setting xlock manually gave problems (produced a long list
of error messages) when xautolock tried to lock the screen after xlock
had already been started manually by the user.
Hope this helps. I think there is something called 'xidle' too,
with a similar function to xautolock.
John Bradley <email@example.com> even sended the program
and thanks for that now i can use it right away (i can't use ftp on my sun, i
dont' have a open conection to a ftp server).
Thanks to you all
