Default Re: Is it ok to leave a CRT monitor on 24/7

i set mines to 1 min back then before i went to sleep, because its hard to keep my room dark at night and from letting my parents know that im still awake.
But now, i use a Laptop, which is more energy efficient than the desktop and LCD. I use my Desktop for about 5 hours a day for gaming, so that takes a lot of energy since its using a lot of load.
Desktop -Cooler Master NV690/AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE/MSI 880G-E45 Motherboard/2 x 2GB DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws X/Sapphire HD 5870 1GB GDDR5/CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX/Seagate 7200.12 500GB (OS), Samsung F3 1TB (Storage)/Sony DVD Burner/Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
