So it sounds like we've got the leave-the-power-supply-on question resolved.

What about the room lights? We are divided in our unit as to whether it's 
better to leave the lights on in the 6 different camera rooms between patients, 
or more efficient to turn them off. I'd like to leave them on since we run in 
and out of these rooms all day long, and I think it can be confusing to 
patients also.

Any energy advantages to leaving these fluorescent lights on?

We have a TOPCON TRC-50IX as our main capture cameras for Color, RF, FA, & ICG.
I know for a fact that turning the capture PC on and off quite often degrades 
your hard drive and making it more likely to fail overtime; earlier compared to 
a PC being on continuously, or a one that is turned off then on occasionally.

We used to keep the machines on during the working days, and @times we shut 
them off just before the weekend.  But we were asked by ITA department to leave 
‘em one so network admins can update, patch, and backup our servers during the 
Well; not so quite sure if the on/off procedure would have any effect on the 
camera parts like light source and power supply unit etc… But I know from 
experience working on different electrical machines that is not a good practice.

So; leaving them on in my opinion is a good practice, and time saver, as said 
if you need to get some quick study shots then the machine is ready, and you 
don’t have to wait for it to initialize.

One of the photographers has begun turning off the 50ex after every study to 
avoid the sound of the camera in their office. I don’t think it really matters 
if you leave the camera on all day or turn it off and on multi times.

Perhaps someone has information which would enlighten an old dog photographer 
like me.
