What exactly do you mean by locked system. Do you mean a hang or freeze?
If that is the case the explanation is simple...You no longer have access to the keyboard to execute the CTRL+C or CTRL+Prt Scr keystrokes.
If you mean when the screensaver or power management has locked the system and requires a password, the above is also true...until you provide the authenticating password.
