    For those that DON'T autohide their dock: Has anyone ever experienced burn in?

    Unless you have a CRT monitor, it shouldn't be a problem. At any rate, any static screen should be either turned off or changed from time to time anyway.

    Just something I was curious about, because I have seen it one LCD/plasma tvs - the bug for news stations will burn in because it never moves and the screen is always on.

    Yeah, it can happen, especially in stores where a TV is left continuously running on the same station all day. Most consumers don't have this problem though. CRT's though, they were horrible when it came to image persistence/burn in.

    That's what I thought. It is now apparently obvious that I have too much time on my hands tonight. I should sleep.

    It's weird because I complain all week about how little sleep I get, but I dont take it when I can get on Fri or Sat nights. I have the urge to sit here and listen to music while surfing for no reason.

    I had that problem when I was in college. Now I have to get up at 5:50 in the morning 5 days a week so I'm ready to go to bed when 10:00 comes around. Fri and Sat nights are the only nights I can stay up till 11 or 12 and not suffer so much the next day

    Than you have major issues my friend! I don't know how you can stay up so late. I think I ruined myself by doing too many all-nighters.

    What do you do at 4:30 in the morning? I used to work at a bakery from 11:00 PM until 7:30 in the morning. Worst job of my life. I felt like I was in a constant state of never being awake or asleep.

    I hadn't taken kids into consideration. I'm sure I'll be getting up much earlier once little ones come along.

    I know how you feel. I work 11pm to 7am. It's 6:23 am on my day off, and I still can't sleep! :(

    Get more sleep! :)

    I don't think burn in should be an issue.
