My display goes to power saving mode even during games.

My display goes to power saving mode even during games, and thats really annoying. How can I completely disable the power saving mode timer? I had this problem with mandrake 10.1 and kde, but i did change the power saving mode time to 120 min in the kde control center, so it wasn't a problem. Now i use fluxbox and my screen goes black in about five minutes.

:::edit your .bashrc file and put in the following line:

xset s 0 0 s noblank s noexpose -dpms

:::edit your .xinitrc file as follows:

xscreensaver &
exec fluxbox

:::now when fluxbox starts you'll see your mouse cursor then the xscreensaver splash/config window. Let it sit or click on settings/options OR click on the xscreensaver window and it will go away. Any questions about the fluxbox slit? I have a cool script for setting it up.
