I agree with Fuzzy in that it is a hotly debated topic and has been for years. There are actually 3 camps on this one. One says leave it on all the time, one says no turn them off when you are leaving the PC for any extended period of time, and the third camp says it makes little to no difference. Personally I leave mine on all the time. My present computer has been on (most of the time) for 3 years now. I only vary from that with laptops. Laptops make me nervous because they tend to generate more heat and have a much smaller space to dissipate the heat. I tend to leave them on during the day and turn them off at night. Remember though, Rule 1 "The boss is always right". Rule 2 "If the boss is wrong, see Rule 1". :-) Spider Largo, Florida 33771 http://web.tampabay.rr.com/spider1 -----Original Message----- From: 24hoursupport-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:24hoursupport-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Lpagsugu@xxxxxx Sent: Sunday, July 21, 2002 9:19 AM To: 24hoursupport@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [24hoursupport] Is it okay to never shut computers down? At work, manager hates it when we shut down computers. Outside of the fact that we could save electricity by shutting down the comps, should we just leave them on continuously? Pros/cons?
