Default standby or shutdown

When computer is not in use what is better? Do you recommend completely shuting down, going into standby mode or leaving it powered on?

standby is jsut as good, it only uses a bvit of power, even if you shut down electricity leaks through the line, so you woudl have to shut down and unplug to make it truly eco-friendly..

Standby will be fine, and your "boot up" time is faster
