How can I control the power-saving options of Win2k servers?

I need a way to control the power-saving options for our Windows 2000 servers. We need the monitors to never turn off, but I can't find an AD policy setting that controls this. What is the best way to enforce this setting no matter who is logged on (if anybody)?
I think you can create your own administrative template to add this to your group policy objects (GPOs). Remember, GPOs are nothing more than registry settings that are forced onto a system either at bootup or logon. To learn more about creating your own .adm files, read this article on administrative templates.
