    i am asking myself
    to put mb pro to automatically turn off display and puts computer to sleep after 15 - 30 minutes of inactivity or not.
    i often leave computer for 20,30 minutes and come back and put it back in work mode, after it has gone to sleep on several minutes earlier.
    is this causing stress to display and computer components or is it better to have it set up like this?

    It doesn't hurt for the MBP to sleep. You can use a combination of screen saver, sleeping the display or sleeping the hard drive as your needs require.
