Here at “What’s On My PC”, I typically fire up my PC in the morning, leave it “on” all day and then put it to bed (turn it “off”) at night. I like the idea of booting the computer when I get up to refresh it by clearing the memory, let the Window’s updates take, etc… I also don’t like the idea of leaving a computer on 24/7 because you just upped the risk of the computer being compromised by another person (such as a child) and or externally via the internet. I know at some places of employment, PC’s are left “on” 24/7.
Also, as an added note; if I leave my house for an extended period of time, I turn the computer “off”.
In summary, I look at a computer as an appliance that requires some level of supervision…
What is your take on this?
