mine's always on- until it locks up. But my boot is soooooo slow (Whay I am getting a new comp, hopefully, among other reasons), that I will pull out my hair waiting for my comp to start, so I really don't save time restarting to speed the comp up.

But I probably will with the new comp.

Mine is always on, its either encoding or downloading. Plus I would rather my bearings of hard driver wear out than the circuit board burning out.

I leave my computer all the time.. So I dont have to overclock with clockgen again again and again *P4P800-VM*.

So this is what I do

Night time: My computer folds from 10:30PM untill I get up from bed.. around 7:10AM, I do the computer news for my friends forum. THan I leave at 8:15AM and go to school for 6 hours, in that time frame the computer is folding when im at school.. than I just repet the same thing again again
