I have a Window Server 2008 R2 server acting as a terminal server for mobile devices running a single application, but I am having issues with the screen saver popping on after ten minutes. Is there a setting in terminal services to make the screensaver settings universal? If not, how should I approach this issue?

You should be able to do this via group policy:

User Configuration, Administrative templates, Control Panel, Display Check out Screen Saver, Screen saver executable name, and Screen saver timeout
