If you can access the computer via ssh, for what purpose do you wish to unlock the screen (by which I am assuming you mean the screen on a monitor attached locally to the computer)?

Disable the Xserver on your instances.

I'm not saying it will fix your problem (though I think it's likely), it just really pisses me off when I find a database server running a screensaver.
