In general, you need to
1. run a key-grabbing program, like dmenu or most games in fullscreen mode
2. run slock without using the keyboard, i.e. over ssh or a button or whatever
and slock will fail to lock the screen.

This stuff sure got me worried, and I will definitely take my laptop
with me to the toilet from now on.
