Not always. Free electricity, e.g. from geothermal, wind or solar, may be 
generating welcome heat as a byproduct of the primary use. A screen that 
doesn't blank may be functioning as a night light in a location more 
desirable than a customary night light location on a wall.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
