Additional thought:
I agree completely with your "I always like to pair those  
commands" (about lock and unlock screen in the same handler):
Many times I noticed (on Mac OS but not on Windows) that forcing  
unlock screen seemed to refresh the screen faster and then provide a  
better "reactivity" from the user point of view. I always use it even  
if the docs say it's not necessary.
