Regarding Energy Saver and the original iMacs, I believe there is an issue to watch for. If I'm not mistaken, it is unwise to allow the display to sleep while the rest of the computer is running.


The original iMac has no fan, and relies on convection cooling. I seem to remember an Apple tech article saying the machine will not cool properly if the display is sleeping and risks overheating.


Using the screen saver rather than display sleep circumvents this problem.
