Default leaving monitor on....

I know that turning the computer on and off is bad, and that leaving it on is better. Does this apply to the monitor as well? I turn my monitor on and off a few times a day. Should I just leave it on like the computer and turn it off when I sleep?

Leave it on standby after 20 minutes of non-usage.
(You can set the options on the Screen Saver properties)

Turn it off at night.

agreed, just let the computer control the monitors power saving mode i.e. set it to standby after 10 or 20 minutes and when you turn your pc off don't touch the monitor as it should standby itself. at most a monitor could only use a couple of watts in standby, which is insignificant
