Could you qualify the image retention comments? Have you experienced this yourself or done research? I run 20 OLED light at night on desktop, 50 OLED light during day at desktop. Night gaming is around OLED light 40 (I use bias lighting) and day gaming around 70.
I do take precautions though on the desktop. I have a 1 minute screen saver that activates fairly regularly, black theme chrome web browser, black desktop background with icons hidden, deluminate extension, auto hide task bar etc. So far zero issues.
Make a 3840x2160 dark gray image and full screen it after playing a game with static UI for an hour or so. You'll see it. I have my wallpaper set to rotate every 30 minutes, and I can slightly make it out on solid grays sometimes. However, solid grays are the first thing to show IR on this set, but you'll likely never see it in real content unless you really pushed it.
I've done multiple ~12 hour sessions in Diablo 3 with 25 OLED light, by the end I can clearly make out the UI on solid grays but never in real content. 3-4 hours of watching content afterwards, the IR is still there just as noticeable as ever. However, turning the TV off for the night and coming back almost completely fixes even the worse cases of IR for me. To the point i'm not concerned with IR that much. So i'd make sure you turn it off every night, so it can do it's pixel maintenance cycle.
I don't hide the taskbar or hide desktop icons, because it's annoying. I'm hoping i'll never have to. If your desktop images are hidden, how do you get to your stuff? Do you just not put anything on the desktop?
I've also thought about using a solid black wallpaper as it dramatically helps reduce ABL.

Because you aren't testing for it probably. When you can see it in real content, it's usually too late.
Both my 55" LG OLED and this one get noticeable IR on gray screens, quite quickly, the amount of time until it goes away varies but the TV usually clears itself completely between sessions (while sleeping).
Also, it is much harder to SEE burn-in at 100 OLED but it is also much easier to GET burn-in. It's dangerous. Most of the time burn-in and IR becomes easier to see at lower brightness levels, so you might run 100 OLED light and think there is nothing. I had a friend almost ruin his Samsung OLED because of this, it took him 2-3 solid weeks of running patterns to get rid of the IR which was really bad at lower OLED light levels, but completely invisible at max.
All I can say is be careful. I'm scared to go above 30 on mine after seeing what he had to go through.
