I have a Win 10 VM that is used for presentations.
I need to be able to turn off the screensaver so that it does not come on during a presentation.

There is a domain GPO that sets the screensaver time and locks the control.

I have tried:
Setting local Group Policy - but found out that domain GPO overrides this.
Setting registry, but I need to restart for it to apply which resets back to the original GPO.
Set Presentation Mode - but it said presentation mode does not exist for VMs.

How can I disable the screensaver, if only for the current session.
