Hell, It's about time!
Do you turn your computer off? Is your computer always on? I leave mine all all the time. What I generally do is turn my speakers and monitor off before bed or when ever I leave for the day. The only time I actually turn it off is when I'm gone for a few days. How about you guys?

I turn it off completely when I've finished using it. I'm not going to waste my electricity just to save myself some time.

I try not to as I normally have something running for a reason so I try and leave it on most day's and night. Although sometimes I turn it off at night because of paranoia because I think I have left it on to long and it could set a light and burn the place :?

They are not very happy thoughts but hey..

I used to leave it on all the time and will reboot only once a week or so. Lately I put it on standby, it's less noisy at night.

Mine stays on 24/7 unless I lose power except I'll cut the monitor off. I even leave my computer at work on except for the monitor. Desktops weren't really meant to be cut on and off continuously. That's what tablets and laptops are for.

I have a laptop and it's pretty much always turned off when I'm done.

I have occasionally left it on all night when I've slept but my Dad bollocked me one night so I haven't done it since. Apparently the electric bill was going through the roof!

At school I just leave it on all the time. We have to connect through their stupid server here so it's easier just to stay logged in, instead of shutting it off and going through that crap time after time.
