    How to change desktop lockout time?

    I have a Lucid machine that is driving me bonkers by constantly locking the desktop screen, forcing me to enter my password each time to unlock it. I have looked everywhere but cannot find out where to change this setting, does anybody know please?

    Change the value of "Regard the computer as idle after:"
