Only turn off my computer when something is wrong with it (like now see here) I also run a 24/7 server on IRC among other places. Restart about once every.....10 days. My record is around 28 days I think.....

I don't usually leave mine on cause I have 6 LEDs on the front that are like high beams on a car and my computer is in my bedroom... so no mines off when i'm asleep but otherwise it's on.

i turn mine off, purely because i have no reason to leave it on, butfor the most part, it is off during the day because im at school, it goes on in the afternoon when i get home from school, and goes off when i go to sleep

And I only turn mine on to use it. Admittedly this happens everyday for prolonged periods but still.

I usually keep mine on part of the day, but otherwise, I turn t off.
