    That maybe long for some of you
    .
    You may want to have that for less. But for me, 5 minutes is fine. Again, in the screen timeout the options are 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes and 10 minutes. 10 minutes is quite long time but 5 minutes is more than enough for me because I talk a lot and it's some of these how to videos I may actually talk excessively.
