Locking XFCE Desktop

I have XFCE (latest ver.) installed on a laptop and I am having problems getting it to lock the screen. Whenever I press the lock button on the desktop sidebar or whatever its called nothing happens.

Check the keyboard shortcuts. XFCE defaults to "ctrl-alt-delete" to lock the screen with xscreensaver.
