1) The manual warns that leaving stationary images on the TV can cause 
   burn in and is not covered by warranty so I'm pretty sure it doesn't.

2) I haven't tried hooking it up to a regular monitor yet. That's my goal 
   for this evening. I have to change the resolutions and xorg.conf file 
   to get that done. Once I got my original config working I've backed it 
   up in three different places to make sure I don't lose it. It took me 
   three days to learn how to calculate everything the first time. :)

Nope. I tried kicking off the screensaver both ways, just in case. Yes, I 
turned off xscreensaver as well. I'm starting to think that the power 
management settings may have something to do with it. Still trying!
