  • 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)

      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!

        De-gaussing your monitor
