    Which is best, If I am away from my PC for 1 to 2 hours, shut it down or leave it running with the scren saver active, I am concerned about the life of my TFT minitor

    go into Power Options and have it "Turn off monitor" after like 20 or 30 idle minutes. that mode is made to save power and the life of your monitor.
