i leave mine on 24-7-365 but i have in my bios to shut down the harddrives after 15min of idle time to save them on run time also same for my burners.. i have to manualy shut down my monitor though and it is what eats up the most power any way !
cost for running it 24-7 is minimal .. cooling also isnt a problem due to the fact im not gaming or anything so my chips arent doing much either just idle!
if its not artifical intelligence, why have it?
