When I was trying to think of syntax, I initially thought "lock stack" could
be an option, but then realized this could imply making a stack non-writable
-- not good.  If "window" is a synonym for "stack", then maybe locking this
object still implies making the object non-writable, but I will admit,
subjectively, "lock window" *sounds* OK to me.

Wasn't as easy a task as I initially imagined.... :-)
