Clutch (brain) slipping - how to put icon on panel to activate screen saver


I did this on my new Ubuntu 9.10 system - the icon look like a PC screen with a padlock on it. Hover over says "Protect your computer from unauthorized use." and activates the screen saver/screen lock. I have no idea how I added it to the Gnome panel and I am wanting to do the same on a new PC. I have not had any luck searching - if I knew what to call what I am searching for I would probably remember how to do it

Thanks,

Ken
