Why not save the company some real money on electricity and auto power off the monitors? And save the lifespan on the cathodes in the Dell Ultrasharp TFT display?

Sorry no recommendations on eye candy. Last screen saver I used was Chromazone from GRC and that was so very long ago.

Update: I forgot in college we use to load assembly demos as screen savers over the flying toasters. I just did a search and the demo scene is still pretty big. scene.org - news I still recall watching future Crew's Unreal demo, that was awesome.

Well, on CRT's it actually uses more electricity to fire them up and down than it does to just keep them going. As for the LCD's, they shut off after so oftem. plus we dont have an electricity bill, its in the rent.

Add to that fact that I could give a crap less.....

(Oh, and just to spite mr anonymous there, im going to plug in a computer that isnt even being used any more. mwahahahaha! *waits for Ted Turner*)
