Wikipedia says if I turn off the laptop for a few hours to a few days it should go back.
Oh. It's a laptop. I was going to say that It's your monitor, not the P.C. but... laptop. Either way, you shouldn't leave it on without a screensaver.
I have it set up to go to sleep after a time.... for some reason this time it didint
It's mostly gone away now. But I can kind of see my profile pic . Im never leaving my laptop open again at all.
Or at least not leaving it without manually putting it in sleep mode :/
How long did you leave it? That happens sometimes with screens but it fades after a while.
@FleshToDust - it was sitting for about an 2 and a half hours I think. I can still kind of see spots where my profile pic was, but Most of it has faded away. It was scary. I thought the monitor was going out.
That's happened before on my phone where a specific app or HUD will show slightly for 20 minutes after it's been closed. It's rare though.
I've never had burn-in issues with any screens. Last time I had screen issues is when I put a magnet too close to a CRT screen. The burn-in will fade out over time though, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
