Question  Will the weather screensaver "burn in" the screen
Post: #1
In the "old days" you needed a screen saver because the phosphors on the CRT would "burn in" and leave a residual screen image.

Hardware: RaspberryPi2 piggybacked to RaspberryPi official 7" touch screen running Raspian-Jesse + Kodi [both current update/upgrade]:

Is that still the case with the Yahoo Weather screen saver I have setup on my re-Touched Kodi skin?
.
If no - question resolved
If yes/maybe - then how can I set re-Touched to go to a blank screen, but pop to an updated Yahoo Weather when I touch my RaspberryPi official touch screen?
.
Thanks - Jim
