If you just want the screen to lock, or if that, at least, is useful to
you, perhaps you should look at slock, xlock, or xlockmore.

I don't know if the dvorak layout will have any bearing on how they
I usually use slock on my laptop and must map it to Mod1+x to lock the
screen if I walk away from it. (I have xscreensaver set up that way, and
with the timed lock feature on my desktop).
Slock just blanks the screen and locks it.
It unlocks when you enter the password of the logged in user, but it
doesn't even give a prompt.  Quite useful.

all tony, all the time!
