☑ The screenlock or screensaver starts automatically if there is no activity on the endpoint device within this time limit. The screen can be unlocked by the user or, if the Allow administrator password is not disabled, the administrator with the relevant password (see: Password - Restrict Access to IGEL OS Components). (Default)
Timeout: Period of time in minutes before the screenlock or the screensaver starts. (Default: 5)
