  3. How often do you power cycle?

Seems like I need to do it more often after watching a blu ray. System is fine, I just wonder why it needs to be power cycled so much. Like once a week to every two weeks

Probably the same reason a Windows PC should be rebooted every once in a while
not changing this sig until "being an idiot" is a moderation reason

It was suggested to me, by a Microsoft rep, to power cycle about once a week to keep everything running smoothly. But I do it whenever I remember to.

Is a power cycle the same as a hard reset?

Yes, a power cycle is the same, just it's official name. I personally power cycle whenever something isn't working correctly, then it works fine afterwords.

After I'm done with an app or game, I always hit the menu button in order to fully quit it instead of leaving it run in the background. With this in mind, I only do a power cycle/hard reset whenever there is a bug. For example, if I select a game and it keeps crashing back to the home screen, then I will do it.

I just do it if it starts acting wonky or something.

I'm not familiar with the necessity of doing a hard reset/power cycle.

All of my devices are turned off properly overnight.
