    I like the Bedside Mode but wondering if it could cause screen burn-in or just generally damage the screen or storm...

    logicly it should hurt anything but i rather have some peace of mind :P

    There shouldn't be any issues with screen burn.

    It's really hard to have burn in on a LCD screen, unlike the CRT's of old. While it is still possible, it's usually correctable, and as stated earlier, it would take quite a long long time to make it happen.

    It's not really something to worry about. You will have replaced the storm with something else before worrying about screen burn in from bedside mode.

    I am more worried about my plasma TV's screen burning than my Storm's LCD!

    Considering the screen is an LCD (which do not burn in images), I highly doubt it will. Like someone said earlier, maybe WAY down the road, but still unlikely. You are thinking of Plasma screens, which fortunately don't belong on cell phones .

    I don't think you are referring to a burn-in like the cathode ray tubes use to do. LCD's are prone to a thing called image persistence witch happens when the you have graphic on the screen for a long period of time and it creates a memory for that graphic but because the clock changes time it would not happen. Its not permanent even if it does happen.

    While it won't cause screen burn in setting it to dim will save battery life..
    unless you can't sleep and are counting the minutes before you go to work...

    But a Plasma screen in cellphones would warm up your face in cold winters. Would be very comfortable. But its the only screen, which is in danger of screen burn in.

    My Panasonic Plasma has seen more than 300 hrs of Call Of Duty 4 with no burn. Recent plasmas do not suffer the screen burn that older models did.

    Seconded, it makes me sad how some people still think plasma's are bad, where in reality, the colors are a lot richer, and they are cheaper. I <3 my panny plasma

    I know that we are off topic but I just bought my 50" plasma and we told the kid it needs some break in time before he can play video games on it. I cannot believe that you have to restrict what you can do on a TV!
