Bug Description

When I was in Screen Settings in gnome 3 and set "Turn off after:" to "Never", then it will be set to "1 second"!!
(1 second idle time is something like "Always" :D)

The value shown in the combo box won't be '1 second' but you will notice that pausing even for a moment will begin the dimming of the display.

Setting to High since the 'Never' setting is effectively broken.
