The screensaver is currently configured to run after a timeout. So it does.

Is it possible to also make it run automatically immediately after the user has locked the session (as in WinKey+L)?

A solution just as good as screen-lock, is to launch the screen-saver, defined as requiring password, using another keyboard shortcut than Win-L.

This is done by creating a desktop shortcut to the screen-saver file (*.scr), then assigning it a keyboard shortcut.

For details see : How to Immediately Turn on the Screen Saver on an XP Keyboard.
