since you gave no usable information hard to say anything.
bash has a variable, probably you mean that: TMOUT. But it is not debian, just bash.

Solved

Windows uses a Sleep Timer. I have just found under Linux's Power settings, Suspend & Power off, the Automatic Suspend which can be set within the range of 15 mins to
2 hours.

I was going to ask whether you actually want to be logged out, therefore shutting down all your apps, etc OR just have it lock the screen for security but keeping it all ready to continue when you login again?

Thanks

When I realised I hadn't phrased my question clearly, I figured out the answer! As a librarian in my younger days I should have known better!
