When I punch in "sudo" and a command, I will be asked for my root password. Afterward, for a period of time (15 Minutes?) I will not have to type "sudo" in order to run admin-level processes.

Is there so way I can edit the amount of time that "sudo" will be manifest? I would prefer it to be more akin to One Minute.
