Screensaver unlock by root

Is it possible to set up the KDE screensaver so the root user can unlock another users
screensaver? I know it is possible on other UNIX/windowmanagers but I canĀ“t find any such setting in KDE.

RE: Screensaver unlock by root

That's not possible in a nice way as far as I know, you could try to kill the screensaver process instead.
