i usually keep my computer on as long as it can go, cause im usually downloading something, or i would turn it off overnight. but i also hear that turning on a computer uses up the same amount of electricity as leaving it on for an hour or something like that. and u can take that to the bank.

Yeah, that's what I do. Don't really see the point of leaving it on, unless I am DLing something. Though, in the winter, I leave it on sometimes to warm up my room.
