Is it bad to leave a laptop screen on with the same image for long periods of time

I need to leave my laptop on for around 8 hours so I can control it with TeamViewer when needed. It would not be in any kind of sleep mode, like if I sat there moving the mouse around every 3 seconds to keep it on. I do not have to worry about keeping it on though, because a TeamViewer connection prevents it from going to sleep.

If I left my computer on for that long without the picture on the monitor changing would it cause any damage?

    Turn the brightness down and it should be fine. Even set the screen to turn off (but not suspend).

    If you're using a remote connection to interact with the computer why do you think the image won't change? Anyway no, not a problem, but this seems to be a misunderstanding of what Teamviewer does.
