Your initial message seemed to imply that you thought this was
related to Mate, hence my screensaver config reply.

Given your additional information, this may be related to:

  Automatically Logout Inactive Users From Linux System

  Why Unix automatically logs you out

To deal with this I have (as shown in the second reference) a "set

Not certain why this behavior would have changed for you - unless you
are logging in differently or your shell startup script changed.
