You can alter the screensaver time. Is that what you mean?

Right click the desktop and choose Properties. The screen saver tab has the options you can alter.

Try changing the power options.   Control Panel, Power Options, or right click the desktop and go to properties.  Screen Saver Tab, Power Options Button.

If it's on a domain then GPO is your friend for this :)

I can't remember where off the top of my head the setting is but there is one there as we have it on our domain.

I don't want to alter the screen saver. Stoner79 your are correct. I'm trying to find where in group policy that setting is located.

GPO= Administrative templates\control panel\display\

It is the screen saver time which then locks the computer when the password is set to the Ctrl + Alt + Del screen.
