Because it is not unlocked, the page turn buttons do not work, so I can't deactivate the extension.

The only workaround I've found is to restart the device using the power button, which in turn disables the extension completely requiring opening KUAL to reenable it. Is there a more elegant solution?
I'll look into this (and thanks @zxczxc for the code I might use).

The problem is, the program would have to check if it's in screensaver mode every touch and if there's a lot of computation in the event capture loop, the plugin dies, for some reason.

I can try to have the screensaver toggle the touch-disable before it turns on--that might be a better approach.
