How to change the power setting for the login in screen

We are runing Windows XP SP3... we have two users, one admin and one limited account.  If noone has logged in the system after a sort period of time will put the computer in power save mode (monitor and computer go into standby). If a user is logged in then the login screen will not power to standby.

I am familiar with the registry entries to change the login screen saver and time out values but can't seem to find an entry to turn off the power saver features (as users can do via the display properties screen saver / power settings.)

Where is the registry setting to control the power settings for the login screen or how would I change the values?  As a FYI all users settings have power save set to none... always remain on.  This is what I would like for the login in screen power saver settings too. "Always On".

Thank you.
