I have this configured on my older A51, but I can't seem to find the setting location to configure a new A53 5G.

So after the security PIN is entered, putting the screen to sleep, there is a configurable window of time where the screen can be awakened without re-entering the PIN.

Should be: Settings > Display > Screen Time Out.

"Should be: Settings > Display > Screen Time Out."

The Screen Timout is Not the timeout for the PIN access.
There is another setting.

The screen timeout can be set to 2 minutes, you put the phone to sleep, and reopen it in 5 seconds and it is locked requiring the PIN.

Okay, sorry, that's in Settings > Lockscreen > Secure Lockscreen Settings.

SOLVED!

Under Settings, Lock Screen, Secure Lock Settings,

1.  'Auto lock when screen turns off' must be set to desired setting, ie. 1 Min, 2 min.
2. 'Lock instantly with Side key' must be OFF

Then putting the phone to sleep, and waking before the end of the step 1 setting will awaken to previous screen without PIN entry.
