for overnight use... I'm running a program online using my cable modem

What is best for my PB as I leave it on Overnight while I sleep?

screen saver?
one bar on light setting?
or press F1 until the screen goes black?

What is best to keep it on... I'm playing a radio stream

Thank You.

I say turn the screen off. If you're not using it why leave it on?

I leave the screen turned off, like the other poster said, there is no point leaving it on if you're not using it.

okay let me be clear I feel stupid

F1 until it goes black is turning it OFF
Or is there something else to do?

I need it to run a script using Safari
So I want it to run while the display light is off so I can sleep

Energy saver/Custom setting/

Make sure to set that to 'never' for 'Computer goes to sleep' and to 1 minute or similar for 'Separate time for screen sleep'
