Default Qestion on screen going dark

Please Login to Remove!

I'm new to this forum and new to Blackberry. My first smart phone that I have had for less than a week. Can I change the amount of time that passes before the screen goes dark?

I'm a senior citizen and will probably need a lot of help from you folks.
