try xlock, you should already have it with the xlockmore package. it's just a general screen locker for X that uses xscreensaver

you should setup your box to have electro magnetic shock sensors on it.. that you can turn off remotely when you need to use it. that will deter the baby from touching it..


just kidding.. i hope no one takes that seriously.
