Re: Is it OK if I leave my PC running overnight?
Yeah, i'd leave mine on 24/7 if it wasn't in mine & my bros bedroom, though I don't mind it. It'd be my brother that'd complain.... I also wish I had my own room.....
It is supposed to be better for the computer yeah. I've heard many things about that. They say that if there is a problem with the PC, it'll occur after about 3 or so turn off/on's which shows it must do something to it... Though it isn't dangerous to turn it off and on or anything...as long as your not consistently doing it to test how long it'd take to burn out
(Like an individual who tested there CD drive to the limit... no offence to this person :P)
I'd assume the 4 hour things for heat reasons maybe? I wouldn't think anything other than that could be the cause of that, though of course, its best to switch on standby and all that when you are off it for long periods.... Save the energy ladies and gentlemen...save the world... *cough*...where did that come from?!....
