[Mono-list] Detecting user inactivity & Screensavers

I need to detect user inactivity in an app that doesn't have the user's
focus. It runs in the background and only processes when the user is active.

Since I couldn't find any direct API to determine the current state of the
screensaver, I thought I'd use P/Invokes to do that. I was using the XCB
Screensaver library, with the header file
http://xcb.freedesktop.org/manual/screensaver_8h-source.html .

I could really use some help on what library to use to detect a
screensaver/screen lock but ideally to detect input inactivity.
