Proximity Based Screensaver

Many times I am working with 2 or 3 different computers at the same time. I get really tired of having the screensaver start when I am not on that computer for a few minutes (even if I am looking at information on that screen). So it would be nice to have something that would trigger the screensaver when I leave the area: either using custom RF or possibly bluetooth.

Some sites that I would like to look into:
