[kde-linux] locking the keyboard and mouse but allowing apps to continue to update screen

I am looking for a way to lock the keyboard and mouse on a box running 
KDE but allow apps such as firefox
to update the screen.
we would like to be able to have nagios open to view alarms but not have 
anybody walk up and play with the box

I have tryed striping out the drawing code from a screensaver. This 
leaves desktop visable but it stops updating.

any ideas?
