Default Ghost Image

I remember this one computer at school that froze at the start up and nobody turned it off for a couple of days at least, but when I looked at it later the screen was perfectly fine. I was kind of disappointed . How long would you need to leave it for it to 'burned' in?

I think it can take a few weeks with modern monitors. Maybe they don't even burn-in at all.

I've seen some of the Blue AV edition iMac (or whatever they're called) with screen burn in. If you have a white-enough (or light-enough area) without movement it is possible.

currently looking at a litescribe drive at staples, due to its ability to label the CD shortly after being burned.

Are those CRT or LCD?
