    Some people are funny. They spend money they don't have, to buy things they don't need, to impress people they don't even like.

    No, I have no need for it now that I have a dedicated server.

    I never keep my laptop on 24/7, but I usually reboot it only once a month, unless I come to a point of where I absolutely have to reboot it, if ever.

    I only reboot it if updates require a reboot orif something goes wrong.

    I am beginning to think that way to, our last monthly energy bill was $793.00.

    I currently keep my iMac on until it needs a reboot, my test PC's I tend to put to sleep, my portables I turn off. The server stays on.

    In college I did but now that I live on my own and pay my own bills, I turn it off overnight and for most of the day while I'm at work.

    I turn on my computers to use them. I turn them off when I'm done.

    I do it simply because I have no reason to keep them on, and when I do, the electricity bill is a nuisance.

    my computer sleeps after 10mins of no use. I completely shutdown the PC every night before I go to bed.
