Can I increase time before having to reenter username and password?

Please help--

I have Debian Linux with GNOME desktop manager. If I'm away from my computer over 10 minutes, I'm required to reenter my username and password. Is there any way to increase the time between logins?

Take a look at the screensaver options.

I don't have a screensaver option. If I haven't been active for over 10 minutes, the Gnome Desktop Manager dialog box pops up and asks for my log in information. The box stays there until I enter my username and password.
