Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If you don't mind the disk space, I believe xscreensaver is the one with the most choice. After installed you can even choose the ones (more than one) you like the most and let it pick one at random each time...
LOL, you should try slock and see that people will think the PC is turn off or malfunctioning
If there is something really valuable on the computer they will restart it.
I like to get people in more action than that. The last thing I tried was setting the KDE 4 Dashboard as my screensaver and the 15 pieces widget on it, so they can enjoy their time until I come back (unfortunately it did not work, they can only enter the password)
The screen saver is not for us, it is for the people(customers, clients,supervisors, ...etc) waiting, and we have to make them enjoy the stay while we are away
