It won't really affect anything but your power bill.

LOL holysky

This is a very interesting read, but one thing that needs to be considered, is that the start-up process I believe is the most taxing process on the computer. Through my experiences, my computers that are shut down nightly, then booted back up the next day tend to have more hardware problems, or have them sooner, than my computers that are or have been running 24/7.


Hmmm so it sound bad turning off and on your computer alot

If you are concerned, I suppose doing sleep mode or hibernation instead of shut now and using a UPS to protect the PSU.

A UPS is basically a surge suppressor with a back-up battery...
