Default Last time your computer was 'off'

Try and remember the last time your computer was 'off'. Sleep mode and hibernation don't count. I tend never to turn it off, so last time my computer was actually off was when I had a power outtage about 7 months ago.

I turn mine of when I'm done using it.

You should turn it off to clear your cache.

Default Re: Last time your computer was 'off'

Funny you should bring up this subject, I used to leave my PC on for days or switch it off but leave it plugged in and on at the mains that was until about a month ago, I had been having a problem I couldn't fix, my PC would boot then reset itself then hang on the boot screen or give silly error messages, after reformatting SEVERAL TIMES, changing hardware, cleaning my PC etc I could never solve it. it would run alright for a few days then start playing up again, then I decided to try something different, turning off my PC at the tower and switching off at the mains as well until my next usage. Guess what? yeah you guessed it problem solved, no more PC problems, so I have come to the conclusion that switching off your PC is essential to keeping it running healthy as well as making your components last longer.
From all that you can see I now turn off my PC everyday and am allot happier for it.

seven months ago.... If I turned it off, I would never have a good time to run my virus scans and such.
