Terminal Server Lock Out Setting

We are currently using Terminal Services on Server 2003 R2.  Is there any way to adjust the lock out setting?  It is currently set at 10 minutes after which our users have to re-enter their password.

Thank you

1. Click Start, click Run, type gpedit.msc, and then press ENTER.
 2. In the Group Policy Object Editor MMC, double-click Computer Configuration, double-click Windows Settings, double-click Security Settings, double-click Account Policies, and then double-click Account Lockout Policy.
3. In the details pane, right-click the policy setting that you want, and then click Properties.
4. If you are defining this policy setting for the first time, click Define this policy setting.
5. Select the options that you want, and then click OK.

I logged on to the server as administrator and followed the instructions as given.  When I right clicked on Properties everything is greyed out.  I won't allow me to change any of the values.  There is no option to Define this policy setting

      Then you should create an OU in AD and move the users into it, and set the setting above in GPO of OU. If you like set the GPO for their current OU.

Perhaps I didn't ask the question correctly.  When I am logged onto the server, if I'm inactive for more than 10 minutes I have to enter my password to unlock my screen.  I want to extend the amount of time I can be idle before having to enter my password to unlock the screen.

right click anywhere on your desktop, click Properties, click the Screen Saver tab, and increase the Wait slider so it gives you more time before the screen saver activates.  Optionally, you can uncheck the 'On Resume, Password Protect' checkbox to turn off the locking completely
