lock keyboard (and mouse) but leave display visible? possible


Hi -

I'd lie to leave the display intact and updating while locking the keyboard and mouse.

Ideally, a password would unlock the keyboard but hot keys would work as well. Is there already software to do this? Or a Gnome "screen saver" that doesn't effect the monitor?

Thanks!
