I believe this can be accomplished by hooking into gdm PostLogin script,
along with gnome-power-manager/dbus messages.

PostLogin works for login from gdm, but doesn't catch the wake from sleep/unlock screen.  I suppose that's the gnome-power-manager that you mention.  Can you provide any suggestions where I might hook into that?

I suppose the other option would be to have cron watch xset output, but that's kind of a crude approach. 

Perhaps a script in /usr/lib/hal/scripts/linux to catch the wake up.  But, I'm just guessing...
