Monitor Power setting the same for all users in a windows XP machine

Dear Experts,

We need to adjust the Monitor Power Setting for our conference room XP box. What happens is that when there is a conference the monitor turns off at any giving time. We have different users connecting to that PC. I will like to make it so every network profile that connects to that PC has the same "monitor power setting". That it never goes to sleep or never brings up the screen saver. I need the "monitor power settings" to be all turn off that it never turn off the monitor, hard drive, or stand by.

I don't want to have to set it up per user as he logs in to the machine the right settings for the conference room. . I want it to to be for everyone a default setting for that machine.

Regards, M

P.S.  we are not using roaming profiles here

@uescomp; I like the other way, what are the steps? is it simple?

Local policy? or changing default user profile.

If your refering to the default user, just setup a normal account or use an existing normal account with the settings already made.  Navigate to the default user profile C:\documents and settings\, copy the profile contents of what is in the one you made the changes over the top of the default user profile (this folder might be hidden so you will have to go to folder options and select view hidden files).
A 2nd note, sometimes it will not work if you are copying the userprofile you are currently logged into, best would be to log into another profile (admin etc) and copy the user with the changes over the default user.
