Prevent user account from being locked out

on XP Pro, locally, how do I setup so that my user account will never be locked out.  By this, I mean that if he/she leaves the screen for a prolonged period of time, the screen will be up when he gets back, and they will not have to enter a password.  

Reason why, I'm running an application that will lock the user out, but we don't want the OS to lock them out if they are away from their PC for prolong period of time.
