Smart screen saver to cover and uncover a screen when citrix opens

Hi,

This is not a typical issue so I'm trying my best to elaborate this question. We have a single sign on setup that runs a javascript which does the following when a user logon:

1. Launch pnagent
2. Fetch user credential from windows and logon to pnagent.
3. Use /QLaunch command to launch a citrix desktop.

If it's a fresh session it takes about 10 seconds to lauch the desktop (that covers the whole screen), but if it just a reconnect it takes about 3 seconds to show the desktop. For the time between login and the time it launches the citrix desktop, the user will have a limited access to the local desktop which is confusing to some of the users. We need to find a way to cover the screen for that period of time and go away when citrix desktop launches. All local workstations are running windows XP.

Any suggestions?

I'm really confused by what you're trying to do.  You don't want them to see the local desktop and only the Citrix/XenApp desktop?  What is the local machine (i.e. ThinOS (Wyse/etc.) Windows, etc.)?

Yes. That's the goal in general. I want something to cover the local desktop (or hide everything from the desktop, including task bar) so the user won't be confused between the local desktop and published desktop.

The local machines are fat clients, we converted them to be used as a thin client to run Citrix pnagent.

I'm not sure I have an answer except lock down the local desktop so they can't do anything.
