It's better to leave the machine powered on with rebooting every once in a while.

I have never turned my computer off for months, and it works awesome, no overheating at all

Initially, I thought I was reading Croatian. You might want to get into the habit of typing complete words and sentences. Leave it on....turn it off.....doesn't matter. I like to leave mine on 24/7 but my wife thinks I'm wasting electricity....so......off it goes.

I turn mine off nearly every night, it's abit noisy in my bedroom so i turn it off so i can sleep in peace! (its probably not that noisy but my room is quite small)

I keep mine on most of the time. mainly because of folding@home running on it. plus, the Sempron never gets above 32ÂșC, and it's very quiet.

apparently, having it on all the time puts less wear on it than turning it on and off.

I also turn mine off at night, it generates too much heat
