autolog is an option:

http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=autolog

I don't have a way (yet) to link it with xscreensaver but it will likely
happen eventually. What needs to happen is to link this through
xscreensaver and pam so a user has their files closed properly and then
they are logged off. I'm thinking this should be tied to power
management timings.
