    Increase Time Before Lockout


    I am running Ubuntu 11.04 on a dual boot with Windows 7 Home Premium (32 bit) Dell Inspiron 560s.

    As long as I am engaged in activity in Ubuntu all is well. However, if I leave my computer to get a cup of coffee I find on my return the computer screen is blank and when I activate it a window comes up asking me to enter my password to take it out of lockout, leave a message etc.

    I can't seem to find the appropriate command to increase the time before I get locked out.

    What steps can I take to increase the time the system stays active before I am kicked out and have enter my password again?

    That is controlled by your screen saver.
    Go to System-Preferences and choose screen saver.
    There you will see the adjustment for the amount of time before the screen saver comes on and below it is a chack box to lock the computer when the screen saver comes on.
