well, it is most likely due to the fact that Computer Monitors run at much higher resolutions than televisions. most non high def tv's run at 480i, meaning that in one flash, it writes every other line at 640x480 resolution, then once its done with writing every other line, it goes back and writes the lines it skipped.

PC monitors write every line and do it at much higher resolutions, like 1280x1024. all those extra photons being shot at the other end of the tube are bound to produce more heat.
