other than to please the observer. It does nothing to help the monitor.
Regarding "turning off" the monitor, most don't fully turn off the monitor, just shut down somefunctions, thus the turn down and restart is milder than fully turning it off and on.
Just a query that I would be grateful for your help with!
What is better for my monitor - an ongoing screensaver - eg an animated aquarium (which I like the idea of!)
Having a windows screensaver that comes on at 3 mins, and then the monitor shutting down 2 mins later. Saves electricity BUT I will usually restart the monitor within a 30 minute time scale ie does all the turning on and off actually damage my monitor.....
Or is there little to choose between either???
Thank you for your help
