I don't use or work on MAC's but on a PC that would be a function that's managed under Power settings ...

On my OS X (Tiger), just go into the setting (the one with the light switch), choose screen saver settings, can be changed from minutes to never.

Hmm...it is already set to never.

I think there must be some other power saving function that registers no input.

Go to the System Preferences pane, open Energy Saver and check the sleep options. Set them to either wait longer or change them to never.

Another +1

There is a program for the mac called caffeine that puts a little cup of joe icon near the time and you can click it off and on to turn your power settings off and on. Useful for watching movies and the like but don't want to manually change the settings in system preferences.

Oribis is correct - choose the Desktop/Screensaver icon. Do not confuse with the Energy Saver icon further down!

I downloaded that caffeine thing on my G4, it works pretty well, I watched a two hour thing on it, and I think once during the show the screen tried to turn off (I have no clue why), but I would call it a success overall.
