How to start screen saver without hot corners

This has been bugging me for a while.

For whatever reason, keychain access "lock screen" menu item does not work for me.

And if I am remoted into a mac (by Remote Desktop or whatever), trying to hit a hot corner sucks. Fitt's Punishment or something, you could say.

Turns out you can make an automator service pretty easily.

I still find Automator awkward, but this works.
