    I desire to temporarily change the "Turn off monitor:" option to "Never."
    But when I do this, it has no effect. The monitor turns off after 20
    minutes.

    I am having trouble installting a very large program to my computer that
    takes a couple of hours to install, and I want to set the monitor to not
    turn off since that might be causing an error.

    Is there something fancy I could do to make my computer do my bidding, like
    change a registry value?

    Check your screen saver settings under Display Properties and make sure
    "None" is selected. Even though the Power settings are set to "Never", if
    the screen saver is set to "Blank" or anything other than "None", it may be
    turning off the 'picture'. Basically, unless the "Wait" box is greyed out,
    there is a screen saver running...

    Good luck
