Question

If I want to use OpenBox then how can I lock my "monitor" when I leave the PC for a few minutes? Like the gnome-screensaver under GNOME.

The simplest is slock, the suckless screen locker.

You could combine this with xautolock if you wanted to automate it after a period of inactivity.

If you want something more "featurefull" you could install xscreensaver. Of course, gnome-screensaver is an option as well...
