Customize the screensaver.

You can set it to the number of minutes you want and then have it display the logon screen after x number of minutes.  In your case, 20.

Be sure to have a password on your account.

Windows 10 -> right click on Start button
Settings -> Personalization ->  Lock Screen -> Screen timeout settings -> Screen /When plugged in, turn off after - set time what you need)
or
Settings -> Personalization ->  Lock Screen -> Screen saver settings -> Wait option
