Under Windows 2000 if you go to the screensaver properties (right click background, properties, screen saver) and set a screensaver, then click "password protected" it will lock your machine after the screensaver turns on.

You can not view this effect by simply Previewing the screensaver, you need to set it to 1 min, let the screensaver go on for five seconds, then you will see the machine is locked.

This is not like the Windows 98 type screensaver password, it does lock the machine.
