xautolock can be used to trigger pupslock:
xautolock -locker pupslock -time 10

Besides that xautolock can be used for a variety of other events as:
Xautolock monitors the user activity on an X Window display. If none is
detected within mins minutes, a program is started as specified by
the -locker option. Xautolock will typically be used to lock the
screen (hence its primary name) but it really doesn't care what program
you make it start. For this reason, xautolock does not interfere with the
default X screen saver, unless the -resetsaver option is used.
This implies that it is the job of the locker or the user to take
the appropriate actions if the default screen saver is to be disabled.
The only real assumption made by xautolock is that a new countdown starts
as soon as the locker exits.
In the presence of the -notify option, a warning signal will be
issued margin seconds before starting the locker.
