It gets too hot in the office so when I get too hot I hibernate it and go in my room and get on my laptop

This, but I never actually tested it. I always unplug my microwave, pc, laptop, etc. when it's off. $75 sounds kinda high though, you must be unplugging a whole lot of electronics. All I know is I'm happy with a $10 electric bill in my 1 bdrm apt.

I'll remember this when I get my own place because I will have a lot of electronics.

$75 sounds like a farce for sure. My electric bill for a 4 level house is only twice that.

Probably easier to flip the breaker if you go around unplugging eveything.

Your computer doesn't hate restarting, it hates you for not managing software correctly.

It's pretty much always on, but on the rare occasion that nothing is running for 30 minutes, it's set to go to sleep. I'll sometimes turn it off if I know for certain that nothing will be needed from it while I'm sleeping.

I chose 'sleep/hibernate', because that happens more frequently than 'off'. Still, both happen.

if i'm downloading a big file, i'll leave it on overnight, if i don't leave it on overnight i put it into sleep mode. i also put it into sleep mode when i run out for a few hours. the only time i actually turn it off is when i'm gone for the weekend.

Keep in mind that I live in Hawaii, we pay a premium for electricity as well as everything else. I also work out of my home which could also explain the increase. My average electric bill before I started unplugging things was around $300, I am now paying around $230 consistently.
