Oftentimes, we leave our computers on all the time, because frankly it’s just easier that way. And that may be useful if you are constantly using your computer. But, if there are days when you use your computer for only an hour or two (like a computer at home), it actually is best to turn it off. And not just in terms of saving energy, but it can increase the longevity of your powerful friend.
And if your computer is being used often, make sure to set for Sleep Options in your Shut Down Menu. Instead of turning it on and off all day, set your sleep mode to 10 minutes and save without lifting a finger (well just the one time when you set it to sleep mode).
