    Screen Saver or put display to sleep?
    Not sure if its the right sub-forum but here it goes.

    Right now i have disabled the screen saver and set up the display to sleep after 5 minutes of no use.

    I'm not really a fan of screen savers thats why i rarely used them, but what's best for my display? to be turning on and off every now and then or to have a screen saver running for a longer periods of time?

    Hope i made myself clear. And its not about commodity, just wondering for the health of my shinny display
    Intel iMac 24" 2.8Ghz / 4gb
    PowerBook G4 12" 1.33Ghz / 1.25gb
    2Gb Black iPod Nano 1G
    Canon 30D, recently inherited!

    It shouldn't be an issue if your screen keeps turning off. The purpose of screen savers is pretty irrelevant nowadays as screen technologies improve. Back then, when a screen remains stagnant and you change to another window, you would see a ghost of the previous window.
