What is the purpose of the curtain anyway? I ask this sincerely, as I have yet to see any benefit from it.

Why not have just the normal login screen that puts the display to sleep after X minutes. Then a wiggle of the mouse or key press wakes it up right to the login screen.  Saves power and needless keystrokes and eliminates am otherwise useless screen.

I think the easiest solution to the issue is to make any keypress lift
the curtain.  Are there any downsides to that?
