Hello.
I was wondering if i can do some kind of actions when I lock my screen,
for example like pausing AMAROK, or put my status away in AMSN.
thx in advance.

Here's a guy that wrote a python script for that:

Depending on your programming skills you could modify/extend it to do other stuff as well.

In case you have no programming experience, this might be a bit tough. I don't know of anything easier though.
