Cool Lock the screen (no close session)

FC4 64-bit with KDE.
I don't found any screensaver in the GUI to lock the screen with passwd. What command can I run to Lock like a screensaver?

What version of KDE are you using? I'm not sure but around the 3.5 era KDE switched over to their own screensaver. Before that, they used xscreensaver. In either case there will almost certainly be a way to configure it from the Kontrol Centre. It will be in the K menu somewhere.
