Default Do you turn off your PC?

This might be a strange question, but does everyone here leave their PCs on all the time or how often do you turn it off?

All three of my PC's that actually work stay on all of the time and I only restart them when I need to but I never shut them down.

This seems to be the million dollar question.....many forums I've been to someone ALWAYS asks this.

TURN THE PC OFF! Waste of electricity to leave it on.

Usually once every weekend, always-on for the most part.

I don't see the point in leaving your computer on all the time, unless you're running a server.

Heh lol what a funny question...it's really your preference...it SHOULDN'T matter how long you leave it on, but obviously you'll be using electricity if you leave it on. Often times I just put my laptop on sleep so it uses very low energy. I can't imagine it uses that much at all at such times. You should really only HAVE to restart it when a program prompts you to, but you're bound to run into a glitch eventually if you just always leave it on.
