    i chose the 7 pass erase option ... now that it's erasing, i was wondering if the screensaver will kick in (or do i have to activate it in preferences?), since right now it says it'll need 12hrs to finish. don't want to ruin the screen.

    thanx.

    It's not going to harm your screen, even without a screensaver, for 12 hours or 12 days or 12 weeks.... that's old technology you're thinking about.

    thanx!
    also with a bit of patience my question would have been answered by staring at my MBP. but thank you.
