I have a RHEL 5.6 machine and am trying to disable all screensaver/power savings settings to ensure that the display never goes to "sleep"

I uninstalled gnome-screensaver and set the display never to go to sleep via the gnome-display-preferences, yet the monitor still goes to sleep.

Note that I'm using NVIDIA video cards and set display settings using the NVIDIA proprietary interface.
