I have my new HTPC rig up and running. I have been doing a burn in test and I have had my rig up and running for just over 3 days. I good temps and no crashes. My question is: Can I just leave my rig up and running without ever putting it to sleep? I use it mostly for my HTPC, with occasional audio work and web browsing. I figure, if I can, I would just leave it running and power it down when we are gone or something. I really want to know if not putting it to sleep with reduce its life or is generally just bad for the machine.
Thank you in advance for your help and all advice and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
