my linux server auto kick me out after idling for 15 minutes

It is quite annoying and I can't change the policy on that server.
What can I do to prevent this happening? run a background job when I leave my desk?

Do you mean auto-logout or screen get locked on your system?

In case of auto-logout, you need to check TMOUT option specified or not in /etc/profile and alternatively check /etc/screenrc file for "idle" option.
