The reason is that I find that after a lot of hours of staring at the screen(s), it's a lot gentler on my eyes. I don't need color blaring at me all the time. A muted look would be much more pleasant while I'm typing and typing and typing. Since this comes up just before you log off, it's gotta be somewhere in XP right?
I've talked to some other people who feel the same way, but I wrote Microsoft and got no reply.
I appreciate any ideas. Thanks.
