Making screensaver run when screen is locked

When I use the lock session function from the kmenu, the screen goes black and locks. How can I make it run the screensaver instead of a black screen.

from menu go to preferences then screensaver, enable the password for screensaver, now when you want to lock the desktop start the screensaver.

There is no way to associate it with the "lock session" command though? I remember that Redhat used to do it by default, can it be done in FC3?
