To me, that seems like wasted hours on the pc's normal wear and tear. Right now I let it run all day long and shut down before I go to bed, but should I hibernate it or something instead? What's the best for extending my computer's lifetime? Thanks in advance.
Shut Down,go to bed.get up again,turn it on.Get a fresh start.
