Sounds like exactly what xlock does, have you looked at their source

AFAIK you don't even need to touch KDE or Gnome for this, you should
just be able to write an app that steals all key and mouse events at the
X level. To make the app properly fullscreen, you have to cooperate with
the window manager, but once again, look at xlock.

Good luck!
