i3lock improves slock by making it fork() and therefore combinable with
commands to suspend your computer. Additionally, instead of turning off
your screen via DPMS and/or displaying a black screen, i3lock displays
a white screen so you can see if your computer failed to resume from
suspend or if your screen is just locked. Also, when entering a wrong
password, i3lock does not call XBell(). This is important because
i3lock/slock think you’ve entered a password when resuming from
suspend, at least sometimes.
Since version 1.0, i3lock supports PAM.

Enable turning off your screen using DPMS. Note that, when you
do not specify this option, DPMS will turn off your screen after
15 minutes of inactivity anyways (if you did not disable this in
your X server).
