Monitor and sleep mode

I would like my monitor to stay on all the time. I have set all the area's that I can find to leave the monitor on in Windows 7. But after 15mins. the monitor will turn off. Is there a area that I might have missed? Thanks!

I did that and I also went one step belond that and did each power setting. Setting the display, HDD, sleep mode and saved all the setting. The monitor still turns off, LOL.. I just built this computer a month ago and I am using a ASUS MB M4A79XTD EVO. I posted a note to their forum asking if the MB BIOS has any controls that make the monitor turn off. No reply back yet?? My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 216W. Using Windows 7 it's a PnP setup. I check to see if there are any drivers for the monitor on Samsung's drivers updates, and of course there are none. So the only way I can see to control this problem is using Windows 7's setting.
