I don't =D

I heard it's better for the computer not to shut it down (not a fact and no proof) so I haven't been shutting down my computer ever since I heard/read that from someone. My old computer has been on for 24 hours 7 days a week for 2 years. I only reboot it once a month/2 weeks then it just shuts down during blackouts.

EDIT: Checked search and I haven't found a thread like this, but if there's one feel free to close it.

Only reason I found it, was because I remembered seeing a topic like this before.



Stupid search, wish Shinji would make it better. -_-

i hibernate when i need to but mostly shut it down

i always shut off my laptop after using it. i think if i left it on 24/7 it wouldn't be possible because the battery would die. But even on a regular PC i think it would be good to shut down because the hardware could over heat in time and fry your processor. plus your fans could die out which means you have to buy new ones.

I only reset it occasionally.

Not really near my comp most of the time so I just keep this shit off... If I need to it, it only takes about thirty seconds to get going...

Agreed, the 'search' isnt very good when it comes to searching certain forums..
I wonder if there is a way for forum mods to delete forum topics which are locked?
