Use Xbench to fix screen burn-in
Authored by: niccodeamus on Jan 28, '09 06:15:15AM

i believe that this issue is not "burn-in" but some sort of pixel memory issue. it occurs on my 24" alu iMac quite often. this issue appears to be heat related, and always goes away with time and use, or non use. it is very annoying when editing photos, but is not permanent (so far).
i say it is heat related because it is worse when the machine is running hot, and improves if you cool it. some people have helped their problems using fan control utilities to speed the fans, some find turning down screen brightness helps.
