Are they litter mates? I had two that were "sisters" and they always looked out for one another and then fought just like sisters do......really funny. I know what you mean about their personalities too!

I'll spare you the actual image that's my wallpaper. But I have the stinking suspicion that everyone knows who it is anyway....

(televisions, televisions, televisions, sheesh!!)

but i know this can happen with other screens to like lcd so i'm sure this would apply for laptops as well. so better to be safe than sorry!
I've always wondered if it was somewhat of an urban legend....until I saw an image "burned" onto the screen. It wasn't a laptop, just a regular 17" CRT monitor. I was doing a work order for another problem and noticed that even though there was some scenery as the desktop wallpaper, there was this shadow of an NBA player! Sure enough, it stayed no matter what I changed the background to.

To prevent it, you don't need to change your wallpaper often - you need to use a screen saver. This person was leaving his computer on all night and all weekend (which is fine), but didn't have a screen saver go on, so it went sometimes for days without any programs showing on the screen.

I imagine it would be the same for a TV, since a CRT television is basically the same as a CRT monitor (just a different input source). However, I can't think of how you'd have one single image on the TV long enough for it to happen...unless maybe you paused a movie for a month!

A laptop uses and LCD display and the technology is totally different, so I don't think it's possible for an image to be "burned" onto the laptop screen just because it's not changed.

The high end tv's do get images burned into them. Plasma screen for sure.

The msnbc runner at the bottom of the screen is permanently etched on the screen of one guy I know
