 +In the past, computer users were made aware that leaving an image displayed on a computer screen for any length of time would cause that image to be “burned in” to the display.  Although many of the newer monitors have features built in to limit or prevent this, not all of the systems in use at PDG have this ability.  The old method of preventing this was simply to turn off the monitor whenever it was not in use.  Although there are those who attest that computer devices are best left powered on, turning monitors off at the end of the day or when not to be used for a long period of time may actually extend the life of the monitor.

 +Screen savers were invented to allow users to leave the power on to their systems and still prevent this “burn-in.”  The method each employee uses to prevent this damage to the monitor is less important than the considerations that should be observed.  Leaving a monitor powered on at night or over the weekend with the logout message displayed is going to cause this image to damage the monitor.  If an employee wishes to leave their computer at this point, they should power off the monitor.  If any employee notices a computer monitor left at this point after normal work hours, they should take a moment to power off the monitor.    Screen  savers  that  display a constant  background image of any color are pointless.    The purpose of a screen saver is to constantly change the image displayed.  If a screen saver, such as the **Windows Marquee** is used, the background should be black.
