I have it on all the time I'm at home, except when I go to sleep (which takes a long time tongue.gif). Laptop takes over whatever I was doing then biggrin.gif
I'd leave it on all night if I'm downloading/uploading a big file. 700MB+ for uploads, 12GBs+ for Downloads. I have a miserable upload speed...

EDIT: My laptop also never really turns off except for updates or problems. It's always in sleep mode when I'm not using it.

Put it to sleep when I'm not using it or sleeping. I never turn it off though.

Haven't turned off my computer for two years other than updates/restarts. (Through upgrades)

Never one problem and don't expect one for anyone leaving it on like that. Its really convenient to have it ready whenever.

I find it odd that people do not shut down their PC's at night! Is it worth the electricity for a 30 second boot? Or is it an attempt to make hardware last longer or something?

My PC is on from 5.30 when I get home until when I go to bed, I leave it on rarely if I'm waiting for a steam game to download.

I turn it off every once in a while. Otherwise it's mostly 24/7.

It really doesn't take much electricity at all.. Its a non issue.

I leave mine on sleep for a couple days, then I turn it off once or twice per week. biggrin.gif
post #20 of 64
I turn mine off at night or when I'm at work. Other than that is just wear and tear on the fan and components.
