TIP: monitor color change

When restarting your monitor after a power-down it takes up to a half hour for the display colors to stabilize. This is true whether you use the off switch, or it just goes into power-saving mode.

Screensavers don't affect it, though (anything that keeps the pixels energized)

Interesting tip Doug and one I never heard before. I guess I will have to make sure I don't do any color correcting until it's been on awhile from now on.

I didn't realize that either. I wonder how many people made corrections, then wondered why it just didn't look right later in the day. Good tip!
