View Full Version : [ubuntu] Increasing the time of the logged in timeout

January 4th, 2011, 08:40 PM
Can someone please tell me how increase the length of the timeout?

I seem to be entering my password far to often. Every time I just turn my back I have been logged out!! It would be nice to increase this time out time by a couple of minutes.

I am using Ubuntu 10.04

What exactly do you mean?

"System -> Preferences -> Screensaver -> Lock screen..."?

Thank you - yes this looks like the settings I was looking for.
