Setting time for Keyboard Lock in Windows 2003

I have 2 -  Citrix Presentation Server 3's, running on Windows 2003. I'm familiar with GPO's and so forth. However I can't seem to be able to set a time limit for the session to go into the Keyboard Security Lock.
Meaning that when they toggle back and forth from a Windows session to a Terminal session. The Windows Session locks the keyboard, which is fine. However I can't set the time for it to take effect. Currently it's about 15 - 20 minutes before it locks the keyboard. My users would like it to be longer.

I know I can turn it on or off, But that's the only thing I could find. Is their a certain hack for it or is it something they just have to deal with. ?????

Thanks for any info. ahead of time.

are you talking about the screensaver timout used in conjunction with 'password protect screensaver"

if you are that setting can be modified with a GPO at:
user settings>admin templates>control panel>display>screensaver timout.

Sorry for not being more specific, Not the Screensaver timeout I have that dis-abled. I'm talking about if you leave for lunch and you do a CTRL-ALT-DEL to lock your keyboard so no one else can log into it while your gone. Then when you come back from lunch your forced to redo the CTRL-ALT-DEL to log back in. Somewhere it is set to do this automatically within the mentioned time above. Hope this makes sense.

mikeleebrla is right, this is the screen saver timeout in conjunction with 'password protect screensaver' on the citrix boxes that is causing this.

thanks that did solve the issue. I made the change and instead of 15 - 20 times a day it's only 3. I wish microsoft would state somewhere that they both work in conjunction. That explains why I couldn't find it. Thanks mikeleebria for the info.

do you automatically get the points or do I have to do something to give them to you ?

you have to click accept answer and assign a grade to give one person the points or you can press split points to split the points.
