Inactive lockout period for Linux

Hi, we have a situation where multiple linux workstations is connected to a linux server. How do we check whether inactive lockout period is enforced in the network? I assume it can be done through the server.

By inactive lockout period, I mean if you leave your computer idle for a period of time, it will lock the workstation and ask you to authenticate when you're back.

SO far I know it can't be done via server. Every user can set screensaver on it's desktop. Screensavers have the option to prompt for password upon wakeup.
What desktop usersa are running? KDE, Gnome, xfce?
There is only one option in LINUX, implement through screensaver, put it in default profile when you create a user (in the files copied when a user is created).
