just a quick question... when you lock the screen with X-ScreenSaver the screen is ment to be locked right... but with the above key combination i can kill X and return to command mode... is there any way of preventing this... ie when the screen is locked in X for it to stay locked other than a complete reboot...

Disable ctrl+alt+backspace in X

you can disable that by adding

Option "DontZap" "yes"

to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, in the ServerFlags section.
