I'm currently running a few services from my computer for others to use, so I turned off automatic sleep altogether. I needed a similar level of client security, so I decided the best way to lock my computer was to go to the login window. I downloaded WinSwitch (http://wincent.com/a/products/winswitch/) to create a shortcut to login window and Ciao (http://lorenb.com/software/ciao/) to automatically go to login window after a period of inactivity. You can use this setup while leaving your computer awake or asleep with the same client security.
