I've been leaving it on 24/7 for quite a while now, but I can't understand how anyone can leave it on for over two weeks like you guys are talking about. My record is about 8 days. After that, the lag is unbearable.

Use Linux, then you can run it for 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.

Computers these days are disposable. They're always coming out with better and faster stuff that 2 years is a long time to keep your computer.
