So I have an LG monitor (1366x768, VGA, TN) and when it's powered off or in power saving mode there is some light on the screen visible in near to complete darkness. It only goes away when unplugged and i don't want to unplug it every night. What is this called and is it happening on all LG monitors?

It sounds like a faulty monitor. When you unplug it and plug it back in without turning it on, does it still show some light? It could be some residual power but if it comes back there's power going to the backlight when there shouldn't be.

When I unplug it it takes a few seconds to turn off and it comes back when I plug it in.
