Default How to change the auto-lock for keyboard?

Please Login to Remove!

I know it seems simple, but I can't find it (or make it work effectively, at least). My berry locks automatically what seems like every five minutes, and it gets annoying having to type in my password so often. How do I change this?

Options > Security Options > General Settings > Security Timeout = ??

If you're on a BES, they may have this option set to an interval that cannot be changed.

Once I get to general settings, I only see content compression, and content protection > strength / Include Contacts. I don't see a Security timeout

You have a bold. I believe it isn't under General Settings, but under Password instead.

Options>Password

There's an option to enable/disable the auto-lock feature with/without holster.
