Is it bad to leave the tv on all the time? I figure it's better because the electron guns don't have to charge up each time, giving the tube longer life, but I might be wrong. LOL. However, doing so also seems to have lowered my power costs over the last two months. Saved $7 on the electric. Not sure if it's this or not...but it's still pretty neat. Haven't changed power usage at all. Before, the tv was turned off and on at least 30 times a day. Maybe that was the cause for the extra power, but then again, I don't know. I was told once that turning a tv on wastes more electricity than it takes to run it for 2 days straight, if there is no sound, but then again, my physics teacher in HS may have been pulling our legs.
