My point is, you are going to get uncounted hours of fun on your display for many years to come so why waste your money on electricity by running your TV overnight just to speed up aging the phosphors on your display?
I was once very concerned about how to properly handle the breaking in of my plasma (50px50u), but after pouring over all the posts in this thread alone I became convinced that unless you keep your TV in the default setting out of the box which was the torch mode, aka Vivid, you will not really be at risk for burn in.
I think your setting of +10 for Picture is fine. Enjoy your TV and try not to worry too much about it (i know, easier said than done).
