Can I elongate lens retracting time?

When switching to playback mode the max lens retracting time is 1min. Can I set it to e.g. 2-3 min?

There's no CHDK feature for this, but there has been some related discussion and hacks using poke

Note things that use poke or call_func_ptr are camera + firmware specific, and MUST NOT be used on other cameras.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thanks.
In order to avoid poking my camera I prefer to restore the settings that were lost during lens retracting, like the zoom factor. Are there any other settings that are lost?

the focus...
If the depth of field is small, it is difficult to always get the same focus.

 >:(  & light metering mode [P]...
Returns allways to default, with & without C.
Some cams (eg. Ix300) return to everage, other (PS260, Ix265, SX50...) to evaluative.
Could it be fixed with a set_prop() ?
