Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

What I'd like to do is lock the screen and have it wait a set amount of time (eg 20 mins) before it lets me log back in - so I make myself to have a break from the computer.

Is it possible to do this?

Thanks

EDIT: Thanks for the suggestions - but I don't actually want something to remind me to take scheduled breaks. More something I can click when I realise I'm getting distracted and it'll immediately lock the screen for a fixed amount of time. Or even just lock screen if I can find a way to stop it letting me log in for 20 mins or so.

@Braiam No, that's different. –  Seth Oct 21 '13 at 23:47
    
Wait, now that I read it better... isn't just pressing the "username" in the corner, then hit Lock Up the solution? –  Braiam Oct 21 '13 at 23:49
