Re: interesting bet :cool:
Its not a matter of simply turning it on and off.
If you leave the computer running steadily for 10 days straight, your computer gets exhausted. The standard computer is air cooled, so you leave it running for such a long time, the air inside of the box becomes hot and dry, which harms the system.
When you turn on your computer, you use more power than you would use to keep it running, which is only fractional, and does not affect much. If you turn your computer off incorrectly however, this causes some damage if a device inside your computer is expecting something, and it just stops, but not when you go through the correct reboot process.
If you were to reboot it over and over again consecutively however, you would send too much power to your power supply, and possibly fry it. if you have a cheaply made power supply, this may cause severe circuitry damage to your motherboard, sound and display cards, and your disc drives. If you have a moderately made power supply, it will most likely come with a nominal surge protector for such an instance. Which would mean only the power supply would become damaged.
Basically, Turn it off when you dont need it, turn it on when you do, you should be fine
