Change Screen Timeout or Lock Out Time On Android Phone [ For All Android Phones ]

I have been using Nexus one for some time, it is an amazing android phone specially it rocked after the recent android 2.2 Froyo update. One of the most annoying thing about the phone interface is the screen lock out time is to too low by default around 1 minute or 30 seconds in some android devices. There are many users who would like change the default lock out time period of their android phones as per their own preference.
