Screensavers are now obsolete?!?!
Posted on 2011-03-19
Hey there, this may be a stupid question, but what is the purpose of screensavers anymore?
I thought they were used to prevent burn in images on screens from happening, and also to prolong the pixel life on LCD monitors so they are constantly changing rather than being stuck displaying one color.
Is there any disadvantage of turning off the screensaver and just leaving your computer monitor(s) on all the time, if power consumption was not an issue?
Looking for some clarification on this thanks.
