In KDE, there was a option that I liked so much but I don't see it in 
GNOME. It was the power manager profile applet which allowed the user to 
switch into a "presentation mode" where screensaver and display power 
manager settings were completeley disabled. I found it very convenient 
when I needed to keep the screen always on within just one click.
