As an addendum: this is more of a semantic problem than a 
technical problem. Maybe, instead of asking us _what_ to do you
could tell us _why_ you need something. Are you affraid of wasting
expensive CPU cycles or similar resources? Then the answer would
be: don't bother, Linux will move inactive applications to swap
anyway. Or do you want to safe energy ? ACPI would be a place to
llok at. Or is it a security concern? Then i'd suggest a X screen-
saver that has password protection.
