It works with a plasma t.v., haha. It happened to my uncle. Someone at Best Buy told him to use a blank white screen for a while. The image disappeared.

That doesn't necessarily apply to CRT monitors.

Get an LCD monitor, if you intend to leave it on 24/7, it will pay for itself in the long run.

Power consumption for an LCD monitor is usually about 40 watts. In contrast,
the power consumption for a comparable CRT monitor may be over three times
as great. As a consequence, operating costs for LCD monitors are significantly
lower.

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

I set my monitor to sleep after 5min. I just have to move the mouse to get out of it anyways. Some people find it annoying but I say it saves me energy and it makes me more lazy because now I don't have to move my finger all the way to the power button on the monitor

CRTs are practically archaic now in terms of power efficiency, if you intend to leave a monitor on at all times during the day, you would be wise to get an LCD.
