auto-logout with Redhat 6.1

I've upgraded my system to Redhat6.1 from Redhat6.0 and to kernel: 2.2.12-20

I'm a little bit annoyed with the "auto-logout" function.  Basically something somewhere is logging people out after a defined period of inactivity.  I want to change this so that normal users are never logged out but root is.  Can this be done?  If not, how can I turn off this feature entirely?
