you can use xautolock in your autoexec file & use it to invoke xlock
(both programs can be found in RPM format at rufus.w3.org) - note this
only runs the screensaver once you've logged into afterstep (you can
configure xlock to simply blank the screen if so desired) :

#------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Execute on startup :
#
 
Function "InitFunction"
        Module  "I"     Animate
        Module  "I"     Wharf  
        Wait    "I"     Wharf  
#       Module  "I"     Pager 0 0
        Module  "I"     WinList  
#       Module  "I"     Banner   
#       Wait    "I"     Banner 
        Exec    "I"     exec xautolock -time 3 -locker "xlock -nice 0
-mode random" -corners +000 -cornerdelay 0 & 
        Exec    "I"     sh ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/.workspace_state
&
EndFunction
