Set the 15 minute time out in GNOME Settings where you’ve already found it. After that you can customize the timeout value with these commands:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-ac-timeout 600
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-timeout 300

The time outs are specified in seconds; in the above example the laptop should timeout after five minutes while on battery power or ten minutes while plugged in.

You can dnf install gnome-tweak-tool to get a — albeit hard to use — GUI to make the changes and explore gsettings.
