Are you using xlock or xscreensaver? I know that xscreensaver can be configured to automatically activate after a selected interval. There are various options available with xlock. If that is what you use, perhaps a simple script with judicious use of xlock and options could be written. A daemon process that loops for a certain amount of time (ten minutes) could call xlock after that time. If you install xscreensaver instead, I know that you can get the functionality without having to write a script. All you will have to do in that case is make certain that the xscreensaver daemon gets started, and it will be activated when your selected time interval is reached.
