sleep mode

For the vast majority of my boating I do not need to have the screen awake. I really only have the unit on so I can record my milage. Will running with the unit in the sleep mode extend the life of my MFD. Thanks

If you take good care of the unit, it will take good care of you.
Putting a unit into sleep not only saves boat power but will reduce heat inside the unit. This is bound to add a bit of life for the LCD and the other components. Exactly how much longer life would be debatable and subject to too many factors. I am sure the unit will provide you many years of service.
