I don’t use a screen saver because:
- It distracts me.
- It doesn’t let the CPU sleep, hence generating heat.
- It provokes silly discussions like ‘OMFG, Wow, can you give me the .exe?’ [No, but here’s the .deb]
I use a power-off-monitor-after-two-minutes-of-inactivity scheme because:
- I want the backlight to last longer.
- I want it to save my kilowatts, not my ‘screen’.
- If it kicks in while I’m in front of the PC, I know I must have been wasting time / day-dreaming.
Pragmatic, heh? 8-)
