    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if its bad to keep my ipad display on all night? I downloaded the
    "Alarm clock hd" app and I thought it would be pretty cool to use my ipad as a night stand alarm clock but I wasn't sure if it would harm the display from being on for hours at a time?

    I read somewhere that the iPhone displays last for like a million hours ( or some ridiculous amount of time) before it starts to go, is that true?

    Well I'm not to sure about how long the screens last but, I think it might be ok if you have the brightness turned down all the way.. The reason I say that is because if you have an ipad 3 or 4 it might make the battery really hot and possibly harm the battery... However If you have an ipad 2 or 1 I wouldn't worry about the battery getting too hot... The battery is the only real concern..

    The backlight on the iPad is LED technology with a typical 100,000 hours life.
