If the longevity of your display is important to you, turning it off when it isn't in use is a free and simple way of extending its useful life. Allow your Mac to "sleep" whenever possible. Or turn it off if it won't be used for a prolonged period. If you need to leave the computer running for some reason but you aren't using the display, use the Energy Saver preferences to allow display sleep while preventing the internal drive from sleeping.

Energy Saver can also be used to schedule automatic on/off times. Set a time so it will be on when you need it in the morning and a power-off time when you are likely to be done using it. If you are still using it at the preset "off" time you will be provided the option to cancel the shutdown process so you can continue to use the computer.
