Shadow in the screensaver

Good morning and Happy New Year to everyone.
Maybe I'm a bit maniac... I was playing with my screensavers and realized that in some images you can see the shadow of the selection bar under the picture. I mean, when at Home screen, if you select lets say the thirth or fourth book in your list and remember where the selection bar is, if you put your kindle to sleep the bar can be seen (not really seen but "guessed"). Someone else have this impresion?
Thank you for your help

It's called "ghosting". It's inherent in eInk technology.

Thank you for your fast replay, HarryT.
Why it doesn't happen when you turn pages or when, from the Home menu, you enter in a book?

Because in those situations, there's a full refresh of the screen (the black "flash"). That doesn't happen when the screensaver kicks in.
