    Well samsung makes a better plasma then LCD.

    Even though I almost always recommend Plasma if you always plan on leaving it on overnight while you guys sleep I'd probaby go with the LCD.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but a plasma will radiate more heat.

    If you know you are going to fall asleep to the tv why not just set the sleep timer before you go to bed for say 2 hours?

    For a bedroom? LCD. For a theatre? Plasma. Plasma is brighter and has more accurate colors, but it sucks a lot more electricity and it makes a lot more heat.

    It may take more energy, but alot of the new plasmas don't run that warm. I went from a 40" Samsung LCD to a 42" Panasonic Plasma in my bedroom. If I touch the back of the display after it's been on for hours...it is barely warm to the touch. I couldn't be happier with my upgrade from lcd. Go plasma, my tv is usually set with the sleep timer, but my g/f will forget to put it on sometimes, or leave it on all night. We don't have any problems, and I doubt you will.
