Hi all,
I have just switched to a new ISP, and they traffic shape at peak times of the 
day. To get around this, I have been leaving my PC on 24/7 and letting stuff 
upload and download while I am asleep, out at school, etc. My parents would 
like to know if there are any safety or electricity risks involved with leaving 
a PC on all the time. I have told them that loads of people leave PC's on for 
up to all year with nothing going wrong, but would just like some re-assurance 
to show them that it is completely safe. I would Obveously do regular reboots, 
and it is a pretty low-powered PC. Thanks in advance for any advice you can 
give me.
