Presentation mode with ScreenSave timeout


I have a director that is bothered by the company policy that after 10 minutes on inactivity it throws up the screensaver and locks the workstation.  Apparently moving the mouse or touching the keyboard is too distracting when watching a webinar.  I didn't create the policy just have the joy of enforcing it....
So the President would like to know if there is a way to override this group policy when they are doing or watching a presentation.
Other than making an exception for the user where the policy doesn't apply to them I wondering if indeed there is way?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Perhaps a script that modifies the registry to turn off the screensaver or change the time, along with another script to revert the change. I know of no way to do it without the personal exemption. Perhaps someone else will chime in...
