    I am not sure it is possible to to do this on KDE, but maybe a soft like Sentinella can do the trick.

    There's a different solution for that:
    We simply lock the screen, the login manager will ask for a password to get it going again.

    See Systemsettings - Monitor - Screensaver
    If you don't want a screen saver, pick the Blank Screen., set it to lock the screen, done.

    This way you won't have to relogin, yet have the need for the password to use the desktop.
