first to answer your question:

take a look at Wizmo, it's a command line utility that you can use to blank your screens, turn off your monitors, or other semi useful commands.

also in autoit you can do a blockinput(1)

i did something similar in the past where i used a Bluetooth antenna and a cellphone to know when i left my computer and it would blank/lock the screen, and "attempt" to keep it locked till i got back in range.

http://www.daveamenta.com/products/btproximity/ (although this is a few versions newer then when i used it) it was pretty easy to use when i used it.

second:

are you able to just use the WindowsLogo button + L to lock the session? if you don't actually "lock" your windows session prying eyes could still get in by bypassing autoit locking mechanisms.
