I'm using xscreensaver on Ubuntu 12.04 instead of gnome-screensaver. When xscreensaver activates, the unity top- and sidepanel are still visible.

Does anyone know how to force those to the background?

Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

looks like an issue with Xorg, although there is a work around for it.

The strangest name for a workaround I've seen so far :) Awesome, thanks for your reply! –  FuzzyQ Jun 12 '12 at 13:39
