I leave my computer on all the time since I don't like waiting for it to boot up.
I nearly always leave it on, because it is always downloading some sort of torrent. If it isn't, I turn it off. No need to leave it on and consume power that it doesn't really need.
I turn it off at night, it varies on when it is turned on, depends who is using it ect, I also turn it off when I'm leaving the house and nobody else is going to be there
My desktop machines are always on, mainly because I run various servers (mail, ssh, sftp, nfs, samba) on one, and the other is always downloading something.
My laptop is on for about 10 hours a day.
FOLDING FOR A CAUSE e.t.c
meagre australian internet doesn't let me download much, instead its on 24/7 for F@H. shitsucks when i forget to sign out of msn/appear offline and get people talking to me at 3-4 in the morning asking about something.
also, heater. a few nights ago, i came home, desktop was off, room was 4 degrees.
I turn it off when not in use... But sometimes I accidentally fall asleep and leave the computer on...
I turn it off when apps or updates require a reboot.
Well, I'm on my computer most of the day, but when I'm not, I turn it off. (only since I live on myself tho, when I lived at my moms I just let it on. But now I like to save myself some money )
Unless I'm downloading something, then I make my computer shutdown automaticly when the download is done.
My laptop, is always in sleep mode when I'm not using it. So 1 push on the button and it's ready to be used.
I only turn it off if it needs a reboot for some app/game.
I had Dell for 6 years and I never had a problem. I always leave it on all day and turn it off when I went to bed. Thats all. Now, I have 2 years old computer I bought 2 years ago and I did the same thing so far. No problem at all. Its normal but sometime we went out all day then I turn it off for a day until we came back at night and turn it on to check the email then turn it off before go to bed.
I've been only having it on when I am using, ever since I began paying my own electricity bills. It's a honkin' big gaming computer, that takes a bit of juice.
But when I didn't pay for electricity? It was on fooorreeevaaaaaa
Torrenting = On all the time.
I sometimes hibernate or poweroff...
During the day it is always turned on but when I don`t download anything and don`t use it I put it into sleep-mode (by just folding it - it`s a laptop btw).
When I sleep I always keep it turned off.
in the holidays it's on pretty much all day, and off at night. Rarely does it stay on at night, because it overheats, really now it's starting to get hotter in my room. But during week days, it's only on in the afternoon.
Usually always on during the day, sometimes on at night, but when I'm not going to use it it's usually switched off or sleeping. Depends on when I'm likely to use it again.
I let my laptop turn to sleep mode
I shut down my desktop after using unless torrenting
If I'm downloading an torrent I leave it on but the I ussualy do the "shutdown /f /t 3600" command to let him turn off after a hour
