My monitor is set to go into stand-by after 20 minutes of non-usage. The monitor uses up a lot of power which depending on your cash situation can lead to higher electric bills. Today's monitors can be left on for extended periods of time. Just change the power settings under properties and you can leave everything on. Hope this isn't rambling or confusing.
