I quite often work on two PCs in parallel which stand one next to the other. When I work for a long time on one PC and then want to continue work on the other one it is locked because of the screensaver timeout. How about the possibility to inhibit Locking while the bluetooth device is near the PC? This could either use the --inhibit or the --poke parameter of gnome-screensaver-command.

    Now that is a nice idea. I will work on this today and you may expect the result in todays nightly build which should be 1.1.7.
    I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier.

    Thanks!
