dpms control?

Greetings all;
I am running an app that gets messed up if the screen blanker kicks in, 
so I used xset to shut off dpms. Has no effect.  So how do I shut the 
screen blanker down for the jobs duration? Building a device to rock the 
mouse back and forth at 1 minute intervals seems like a huge waste of 
time and metal cutting tools to make it.

So, how can I kill the blanker for several hours or all day/night if need 

Cheers, Gene Heskett
