Default Re: Last time your computer was 'off'

I turn it off everytime I'm done using it. I can see why so many of you guys blow cheap PSUs.

yeah, i turn mine off whenever im not using it, its not like it takes much time to boot up

anyway, its just going to get hot which is pretty wasteful, since if its on all night and day for no reaons its life is getting shorter - but the amount you actually use it is pretty short, anyway, each to his own i guess...

I put mine in hibernate and restart when it seems sluggish. Once I had my notebook in hibernation for most of 40 days. I usually hibernate it whenever I leave it. Even at night I just put it in hibernate, or when I am only leaving it for like 30 minutes... It just bugs me to wait the extra time for it to start up sometimes.

Doesn't take too long in XP. I've never used Vista so I don't know how fast it comes up on that.

Mine goes into hibernate after 30 minutes of being inactive. But I probably should shut it off more often; it's lead to problems in the past. Although surprisingly the cheap PSU that came with my case has held up like a champ.

I keep mine on all day and turn it off at night. It's too loud to keep on 24/7.
