GNOME Screensaver is deprecated (as far as I'm aware) in GNOME in
favor of the GNOME Shell lock shield.

That being said, I believe it still exists in the repositories for use
with the Mate desktop, which uses it as both the standard screensaver
and the lock screen.

Make Gnome screen lock after 1 hour, not 15 minutes?

I am using Fedora 20 with Gnome. The screen Power Savings blanks the screen after 15 minutes and then the screen gets automatically locked. I'd like to have the screen blanked and locked after an hour, but the pop-up only goes up to 15 minutes. Is there any way to make it an hour?


You can set the desired settings in GSettings directly.

Timeout for blanking the screen (seconds; 0 = never):

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay 3600

Timeout for locking the screen after blanking (seconds; 0 = instant):

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver lock-delay 0

source -

$ loginctl lock-sessions; pm-hibernate
