Detect when Win2000/XP becomes Locked

P: n/a
I am designing a program that will detect when a computer becomes locked (screen saver comes on/Ctrl+Alt+Del).

I am looking to detect that and update a database for a custom Time Tracker program. Much the same way Windows Messanger will update a person's status to Away when their computer locks.

Anyone ever come across the code for this?
