Is there a "waiting period" after so many failed login attempts?

Moodle 2.4.1+ (Build: 20130222)

We use LDAP for authentication and I belive our AD will "lock" out a user after so many attempts. So that's an AD thing.. but sometimes users will have failed attempts and not get locked out in AD but it's like there's this "Waiting period" where they have to wait 15-20 minutes and they log in just fine. They can try another computer or browser and still have to wait. So, it hasn't locked them out yet but they must have hit a certain amount that Moodle is saying "wait".

Or so it seems. Is that a setting in Moodle or not? I know the locking out isn't (yet) but is there some sort of "waiting period"? Thanks!
