There are a few ways to do this with GNOME:
1. Start the screensaver, then start gnome-session-properties and save
your current session.
2. Start the screensaver, then save your session when logging out.
3. Put a .desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart (for all users) or
~/.config/autostart (per user). Or use a link to an existing .desktop
