Screensaver default time too short

Bug Description

When installing using the 12.04 beta1 CD the screensaver kicks in and blanks the screen before the installation completes on my reasonably fast system.

For a novice user having the screen suddenly go blank can be quite disconcerting - which may result in aborted or corrupted installations if they then panic and hit the power/reset button on their systems.

Screensaver should be disabled when doing install or at least stretched out to a time way past normal installation period (including allowance for slow Internet connections for downloading updates - you know, the connections developers DON'T use!).

Confirmed, we have code to avoid this but for some reason it doesn't work, I'm looking into it.
