yes to both (diashow).

Reason: make other people wandering by (or sitting in the same room during a presentation
when the screen content is currently not needed but the display is still shown with
the beamer, e.g. lengthy discussions) aware of an OS called Linux and a desktop system called KDE.
I show pictures from kde-look etc. showing the KDE and Linux logos.

Note: I very seldom have my laptop running on battery. Mostly AC, so power saving is of
no concern to me.
