What do you do? On/Off


Just taking a quick survey: Do you shut down your P.C. at the end of the night or do you keep it on? And if you keep it on, how long do you keep it on until you give it a rest? :smoke:

Typically, my main desktop at home doesn't get shut off...unless the cat does it by accident.

If i'm going to be gone for a weekend, i'll shut if off though.

My desktop stays on for months at a time, as I'm a heavy d/l and only shut it down for updates or to do a disk check once every 6 months.

i leave mine on because in collage was taught when doing the a+ you are more likely to have a hard disc crash on start up and shut down than any other time


always turn mine off at the end of the day. Was told after my hard drive crashed a few years ago that it should not be left in standby and should always be turned off at the end of the day so it can do a checkpoint
