Re: The True Test...
Computers when left on for long periods, I find slow down somewhat.
They do require restarts to clear.
There is no need to leave them on when not required.
Fans for example only last a certain amount of time, and the same can be said for the components, of which there are a lot of.
If the computer isn't being used, and isn't being used for any task, leaving it fully on, even in a sleep state is wasting power, and wasting the computers resources.
