How to keep screen from turning off

I'm making a game using the accelerometer, so it uses the tilt of the device and doesn't require touching the screen. My phone's screen is set to turn off after 1min of inactivity (to save power), so while playing the game it switches off, I guess the phone thinks nothing is happening unless I touch the screen. Is there anyway for the game to override that setting so it doesn't switch off?

I could change my phone settings, but ideally the game should be able to make the phone think it's being used (since it is being used).

Or is there a setting in GameSalad I've missed?

    I have a galaxy s2 and I noticed the screen diming, which is a good indicator as you mentioned.
