A "never" option for "Display Off" setting

Hi guys I would like to know if it's possible for chdk to hack my SX150 IS Display Off menu. With Canon firmware on the Power Saving menu the Display Off options are limited to some between 10 sec to 3 min. I like to have the display to never go off.

Can someone point a direction to achieve this? is it possible with properties?

tnx

About the Disable LCD off option on the CHDK menu. Is there some lua script function to set this menu entry directly? The only way I've found is simulating key presses.

Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thanks guys I've found this entry

 CONF_INFO( 67, conf.alt_prevent_shutdown,   CONF_DEF_VALUE, i:ALT_PREVENT_SHUTDOWN_ALT, conf_update_prevent_shutdown),

so to set this option to always I did this -> set_config_value(67,3)

leaving the solution to others here =D
