Lock on unplug

8 years, 9 months ago

Here's a hack for Gnome (vaguely relevant to Android too) that I've been using for a little while. When I get up from a computer, I generally want to lock the screensaver. I also pick up my phone from a USB dock (not the Nexus One Desktop Dock; that doesn't connect to a computer). So why not have the screensaver lock automatically when the phone disappears from USB? This is helpful when you're hurriedly picking up the phone to answer a call, and might otherwise forget to lock the screen. Of course, if you get a lot of calls that you want to answer while looking at your computer, this is not for you. :-)
