Video Power Down Timeout

This setting controls how long the system must be idle for the video to be powered down. It is specified in minutes, or set to "Disabled". How long you set this for depends on your personal taste and how you use your system. Note that a colorful "screen saver" really doesn't save any power at all over regular use of the monitor--the monitor is still on and displaying information either way.
