  • Do you leave your computer on 24/7?

    Or do you shut it down at some point?

    I shut my computer down at night before going to bed.

    I keep mine on 24/7 and only shut it down if something forces me to.

        off, to clear the cache or memory or whatever! Also, it helps keep my room cooler This new one I could probably leave on if need be. But it loads up in like 15 seconds so no reason.
        Good morning, son
        In twenty years from now
        Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
        And I can tell you 'bout today
        And how I picked you up and everything changed
        It was pain
        Sunny days and rain
        I knew you'd feel the same things...

          I shut it down.

          Considering the fact that I usually get off of it sometime between 2-5 am and then it comes back on around 6 am and it stays on all day. I really don't want it to overheat.

            i leave it on because it kinda takes a while to reboot and I'm an impatient insomniac

              I shut it down before going to bed unless I'm downloading something.

                Shut it down at night. Had an ol' roomate who kept his on 24/7. Long story short, the computer did not like that and went insane. It no longer works. I've got a sweet rig and don't feel like wasting it.

                  I close the screen, but, normally don't shut down completely.

                    With the computer that we had at my mom's house, that thing would run 24/7, and rarely be turned off except when we really needed to.

                    Now, with my laptop that's 4 years old, it gets shut down every night before I go to bed. It gets very hot very easily. I've got a cooling pad for the laption, but it still isn't enough. If I'm not working on my laptop, it's not turned on.

                    Plus, my roomie's friend told her that one computer year is equivalent to 18 computer years, in how quickly it ages and deteriorates. :blink: Kind of a scary thought.

                        I like to put mine on standby. Except when I am gone for long periods of time or on vacation.

                          turn it on at 6:30 am, shut it down at 7:30 Am, go to work, come home turn it on and leave it on until about 8:00 PM, so all toll its on about 6 hours a day.

                            24/7. Thus, we usually have high electric bill with all the computers that are on.

                              On 24/7. Spin down HD when inactive or not needed, display sleep when not inactive.
