[access-uk] Re: Turning off a commuter

I have windows xp on this machine and although it's very stable, of course, it's not perfect. I don't purposly reboot unless I need to and usually this doesn't cause me any problems, but then I do have quite a powerful machine. Of course at times I do need to reboot due to windows updates and potentially other software updates or of course occasional crashes. I'd say that I reboot on everage about evey 20 to 30 days and this certainly does not cause any problems. I do agree that when going away it's probably better to turn it off since the computer is not going to be used, so usually if I go away for more than 2 days I do turn it off.

The thing computers and othe electronics really don't like is the heat
cycling between cold and hot and back again that would normally occur
when you switch the machine off.  Hence leaving a computer on 24/7
should really not be a problem because you don't get those stresses.
Whilst Windows is lots more stable these days every now and again it may
be an idea to put the machine through a reboot and things happen in
memory that are not always cleared up and reboot is a good way of
clearing that up.

There is a balance however and possibly if you were not going to be
using the PC because you are away it would probably be good idea to
power the machine down whilst your away, it will also save you a little
electricity as well.
