Automatic log off; How do I change this?

When I leave my computer on my login account (the login using the welcome screen with users) after a set time (im guessing around 5 minutes) of being idle it will switch user and go back onto the welcome screen. Usually to stop it I put some music on WMP and mute it, just because whilst somethings playing on that it never logs me off.

Is there a setting to where I can change when it logs me out?

Thanks in advance.

Most likely it's the screensaver:
Start/Settings/control panel/display/screen saver

Check the "wait" time and the "on resume, password protect"

If you computer isn't on all day, I would suggest just to disable the screen saver.
