Is it better to let the monitor turned on while I sleep? Or is it better to turn it off?

If it is a LCD type I wouldn't think that this would be a problem, you can always use the hibernation or sleep modes which will allow the monitor to stay on while not sending a video output to the monitor. A CRT type you would want to have a screen saver at least as a constant image of the same kind can burn that image into the screen, this isn't as prevalent with LCD monitors.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I always turn my monitor off if I'm gonna be away from my computer for more than say 20mins, i think this is just one of those habits tho :huh:

Although I've never had any problems with my monitors.....:thumbsup:
