Locking Console Screen for Slackware


I have a slackware server in a server room where I worry that anyone can do the cntrl+alt+del and reboot it. Since its our mail server I was wondering if there was a way to Lock the console screen after like 5 minutes?

Anyone have any suggestions?

You can change the behavior of cntl+alt+del in /etc/inittab. Change it to something harmless.
