What do you do when you're not using your computer?

I turn it off at night, since I won't be using it again until I come back from work the next day.

It's on for most of the day. I would put it to sleep during the day when not using it, but sleep mode doesn't work very well, it likes to turn itself back on alot for no reason.

At night I shut it down.

Sleep usually. But lately I've been leaving it turned on cause I'm doing stuff in the background that I don't want to interrupt.

My computer is turned off when I'm not using it. I have a SSD and it takes all of 10 seconds to boot to desktop. I only leave the PC on if I'm seeding, doing a large download, or something else that would require a large amount of time.

I leave it on, I turn it off when I go to bed or before going on a trip where I'll be gone for the whole night.

Make sure you have it set so only the power button can wake it up. I had this problem for a while, found out it was my mouse (super high DPI) sending minute signals and waking the whole system up.
