How often do you shut down your computer?

#1InfectedVaderPosted 5/30/2012 8:20:44 PM
I usually just keep it on...

Is that bad?

No, that is not bad. I only put my computer to sleep because the lights keep me awake.

Every night before going to bed. During the day its asleep.
#4OdiousThirteenPosted 5/30/2012 8:27:39 PM
Whenever I'm done using it.

I shut it off when I go to bed. I have an SSD so my time turning it back on is about the same as it takes me to get comfy in my chair.

I usually hibernate. Restart when I need a reboot.

Haven't actually turned it off in like 6 or 7 months

I shut it off when I go to sleep or leave the house for longer then 2 hours or so. It should not really matter. I just prefer to shut down anything that is not being used. Even on other type of consumer hardware, I usually do not leave things on standby.

When I'm not using it, it's asleep. If I know I'll be gone for more than a day, I'll shut it down.
#9RilievoPosted 5/31/2012 6:59:21 AM
Whenever I'm not using it. With my SSD the boot time is about 10 seconds.

Every night on average.
