Use Xbench to fix screen burn-in
Authored by: tooki on Jan 29, '09 04:58:26AM
The effect being described here is NOT burn-in. Burn-in means a permanent latent image. CRTs and plasmas can suffer burn-in, LCDs cannot.

LCDs (and plasmas, but not CRTs) suffer from an unrelated phenomenon called image persistence. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image_persistence

All it takes to fix it is to have the pixels flip back and forth a few times, kinda like exercise.
