Redhat Fedora Logs me out Automatically in X

I have X running and after about 10-20 minutes it automatically logs me out. I created a new user account so it is not doing this is root. I just want to know what i have to do so it does not automatically log me out when it is idle.

Thank You!

The screen will automatically lock after a period of inactivity. This can be fixed by going to Preferences>Screensaver and unchecking "Lock Screen after ..." option.

Hope this helps.
