Not true on modern LCD

Not true on modern LCD displays. Without applying power, 'transparent' is the default state for the crystal material, showing through to the CCFL (back light) behind, giving you a white screen. Therefore, black text on a white background will use slightly less power. Compared to the power drawn by the CCFL, this is negligible.

P.S. Thanks for the tips on Putty!
