It is not possible to lock the screen, when gonme-shell is in activities-mode.
I am a bit usure, whether this is actually a feature, or if this has a certain purpose.
But I do not fully understand, why it is necessary to leave the activities-mode first in
order to be able to lock the screen with CTRL-L.
