screen saver and locked problems

Is there a way to set my desktop so when I walk
away I do not get the locked thing where you half
to hit it to get back in. I have tried the screen saver
setting, but I half to set it for over 2 hours. All I want
to do is have the screen saver come on when I walk
away and hit the keyboard and get back into my stuff.
Without the dumb locked sign coming on. Thanks
