Use Xbench to fix screen burn-in
Authored by: niccodeamus on Jan 30, '09 07:31:23AM

An additional comment about heat and image persistence. It is surprising how much CPU time some webpages use. I have just checked iStat on my machine and found the power supply to be running at 82°C (very hot) and the CPU running at 80% although the machine was "idle". I closed one web page, I think it might have been running Flash ads and the PS temp drops 10° in a couple of minutes and CPU goes idle. In retrospect, often the image persistence is of this web site, i dont know if those two facts are related or not.
My point is that some web pages generate a lot of CPU use and heat, and may be related to image persistence / ghosting on LCD screen such as the 24" iMac.
