xset -dpms and xset s off

I have 2 linux servers which are always on. I watch their screens in the corner of the office. Each time I log on I have to enter "xset -dpms" and "xset s off" to stop the screen blanking. Is there a way to get these commands to run once, when the machine is booted, for everyone so the screens never blank. Or another way. Thanks.

Try .xinitrc, or .bashrc, or .login
