Do you want them to lock at the same time? Typically you should be able to set the lock/shut down/hibernate in the power options.

Create a shortcut with this path, name it whatever you want and place it in your windows directory:

%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation

Now create a task in task scheduler that will execute when idle and run your shortcut.
