Default its almost like a temporary tatoo

okay, so i have an lcd monitor right? its about a year old, and i never turn my computer off, if i forget to turn off my monitor over a week, then i get a cool image burn of my background, so at one point, i could see a volcom logo embossed in all of the backgrounds of websites, its pretty cool, i would post a pic, but i dont think u can see it in a pic...

yeah....it's not cool, you should have your monitor set to turn off after like 15 mins or 30 mins if you want your monitor to last. It's not good to have the images burned into the screen like that.

Some of the monitors at my school have the backgrounds burned in really bad. It gets kind of annoying if you are looking at a mainly white webpage.
