    Just curious. On a laptop, how long should you leave the screen on before going in to stand by.

    Modern CRT's or LCD's don't burn in like the old days. The one reason for allowing the laptop screen to blank after a while is to save the backlights, which have a finite life.

    Depends if you on mains or battery but thats only for power conservation.As to burning an image to the screen read this relating to temporary image persistence which is not the same.
