What instructions? The change is so simple it's a one-liner.

"Change (pulse % (15 *...)) in comm.c of heartbeat to another number."

  if (!(pulse % (15 * PASSES_PER_SEC)))         /* 15 seconds */

Make it 30, 50, 500, 2, whatever you want.  That's it, try it, experiment!

There is no where else in the code it checks for idle passwords, period.
That function isn't even called anywhere else, there are three instances:
Prototype, the call in heartbeat(), and the function itself.
