Thanks all for the replies. To answer some questions:

- I prefer automatic. I already have a key on my kb mapped to 'xlockmore
-mode blank', but in some rare cases I still forget to do it, or I'm in
an application that overrides the mapping and the key will not work. I'm
using a DasKeyboard, that doesn't have any 'unused' keys like media stuff.

I guess I'll look into the bluetooth thing. That looks quite doable.
