Laptop Tip: Dim your display

Posted Tuesday, August 9th, 2011 at 5:56 pm by: JS No Comments  

Just a quick reminder for everyone, laptop displays don’t last forever.  Try to remember to turn down the brightness level on your laptop screen whenever it is not in use.  You can easily set your screen to go to “sleep” after 5 or 10 (or more) minutes, which is great, but it’s also not a bad idea to locate your brightness controls for manual adjustments.  It may not make a huge difference, but if you turn down the brightness level even if you’re just walking away for a moment, chances are your screen will last that much longer.  Have you noticed dimming of the screen, particularly in certain areas such as the bottom of the screen?  This may be a sign that your screen is already on its way out.  It will probably still last quite some time, but if you’re already seeing symptoms, it is now more important that ever to take care of your display.
