The idle lock-out feature requires users to log back into the system if their computer does not receive any input after a certain amount of time. To change the length of time a computer can sit idle before a user is required to log back into the system:

  • Click on the Ubuntu start button
  • In the start menu, click on "System"
  • Click on "Preferences"
  • Click on "Screensaver"


In the Screensaver Preferences window

  • Click and hold the small slide to the right of the "Regard Computer as Idle After:" option
  • Move the slide to the right to increase the idle lock-out time and to the left to decrease the idle lock-out time
