Ah, now I get it. :)

I suppose there's a way to do this using xscreensaver-command -watch
and some scripting, but if you have only a couple of scripts that
need to run rather often (and are not very "dangerous", i.e. allow no
interactivity or shell commands), then I'd still use NOPASSWD for those
specific scripts in sudoers.

After all, it's not like you can only have one line in sudoers per
user/group. :)
