Yeah I'm using the script above (without your last changes, what are they exactly?) with "~" as my USER_PATH. The timed suspend is 4 hours and I'm running this script at 9:30 in the morning. I always put my computer to sleep manually, perhaps that's why the script doesn't work. Although it could be something else entirely....

I think I'm getting a suspend after logging in, but the login screen never comes and I have to restart (2x so far).

Unfortunately not, but I think it's the closest solution possible at this time, thanks!

ok, I see the important part for me now, checking the com.apple.screensaver.plist file. Although isn't that better described as the ELAPSED_TIME? For me CHOSEN_TIME is the time described in the LaunchAgents plist.

No problem, thanks again for the updates, I will try this out. Do you think it will work if I put my computer to sleep manually, without any screen saver coming on (that's the way my computer usually sleeps)?

Thanks for the quick answer, just did a quick test of the ps and grep commands, nothing came up. Perhaps the 4 hour timer that locks my account is not controlled by ScreenSaverEngine.app?

What was wrong with the question? It's always nice to get a comment when getting a downvote, otherwise how can you learn from your mistakes?

Yes, that worked, thanks! Just named the file suspend instead of logout. Now I just need to get user confirmation with a popup, if that's possible--I'll open another question: apple.stackexchange.com/q/49946/8699
