Re: X and text consoles - switching back & forth?

Is doing this detrimental to the monitor?

For the most part I prefer to use the console, but some things require
X, so I'm constantly switching back and forth. Each time I switch I hear
a clicking in the monitor (relay?). Will doing this shorten monitor life?
