Agreed. I often run my desktop with the monitor off for exactly the same
reasons you pointed out. If I am the only one using the computer with
speech there is no need to have the screen on waisting power, risk
ruining the monitor from over use, etc. If anyone like Nicol is asked
why his/her monitor is off maybe they should approach it from this angle.
As far as someone getting suspicious over a monitor being turned off
that's just ridiculous, over bearing, and also disturbing. Anyone who
does that is neither your friend or family. What they are is your
jailer. No offense.
Even though i actually can see and do use a screen on occasion for
things like watching films, when i'm merely doing something with
speech or audio i always turn my screen off anyway. It saves power and
stops my monitor from burning out, ------ especially true if i've had
my desktop on for an extremely long time listening to audio.
Imho there's no point having a monitor on if nobody is using it,
especially for a long time.
It severely disturbs me that what you privately do in your own home by
your own choice is so strictly sensored in this way, ---- especially
if you yourself aren't a jahova's witness.
Beware the Grue!
