machine inactivity timer

In Entra, I find the inactivity timer set to 3 hours. Unable to find setting in Azure or Intune. The issue we are having is that the client wants to machine inactivity set to 60 minutes. What they are experiencing is that at 15 minutes, the screen will lock. I cannot find that setting on any of the admin pages. I am thinking it would be something in Intune that controls it, but I can't seem to pin it down. My Google-Fu has failed me. I would appreciate the smack on the head to let me know which field it is and where to find it.

    @Michael Hernandez Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

    For this issue, please check if you configure the setting "Max Inactivity Time Device Lock" in any Settings catalog policy. This setting specifies the maximum amount of time (in minutes) allowed after the device is idle.

    Thnak you for your response. This does help for the machine time-outs. However, i do apologize but I forgot add this in as well. The applications (word, outlook, excel) also have a rapid time out. They will also has to resign into their MS accounts in the apps. Yes, once they re-sign into 1 then they all are true, but between screen locks and app re-sign ins, they are a little annoyed. Anything else to look at for the apps?
