                                  background specified by the
                                  LOCKUPBACKGROUND keyname is

  LOCKUPSCREENSAVERMODE
                   YES            Lockup acts like a screen saver
                                  (no password is required)

                                  inactivity that will cause the
                                  system to automatically lock the
                                  keyboard and mouse. The default is
