But there is still SOME expantion and contraction because the temps will change depending on what you do, but not as much as turning it off and turning it on which can be as big as a 40F degree change in temp from room to medium-max temps.... Sometimes even more.. but my temps are never 10F above room temp... And even after that they dont change more than 5F....

You should only care about leaving your PC on and crap like that if you plan to keep it over 10 years.

But, think of your hydro bill. 10 years of leaving a PC on, you would pay more in hydro than the PC.


I think i have my point + polluting the enviroment.

I turn it off..... But putting it into standby saves electricity, but also lowers the temps some more....

I always keep my PC on 24/7. It's a good choice, because it won't damage your hardware. But, I don't thimk this happens to you guys, my PC slows down after a few weeks. A nice healthy reboot always helps though . I don't recommend this if your PC is in your bedroom and have a noisy fan. My fan is so noisy. CAN"T SLEEP!!!!

Who really gives about hydro bills, If you do, buy CFL. They are special light bulbs. 13 Watts gives as much as light as a 60 Watt normal bulb!
