Windows TS Session screen lock

I have a thin client which launches a citrix app which is basically IE pointing to a website which displays a powerpoint presentation.
It all works fine but the screen locks itself after 10 minutes.
I'm looking for a script which will disable the screen lock and then launch the website.
I can't launch the website locally as it's pointing to a powerpoint presention which needs IE to run it (firefox doesn't have an add in to play powerpoint and then thin client isn't on the network anyway.

Are you referring to the screen saver timeout? If so this batch script should work, just replace the website with your URL.

SET REGKEY="HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop"
REG ADD %REGKEY% /v ScreenSaveActive /d 0 /f
REG ADD %REGKEY% /v ScreenSaverIsSecure /d 0 /f
REG ADD %REGKEY% /v ScreenSaveTimeOut /d 0 /f

"%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" %WEBSITE%
