I think whenever i am in home my computer got started. I never shutdown my PC whenever i am at home. I already do some tweaks in computer and watching movies, download songs and software, games and all these stuffs. You can say that if i am at home for 24 hours, then my computer also ON for 24 hours. So how much time your computer switched on!!!

I use my computer only upto 5 hrs. I browse net, play games, listen to music, watch movies, paint pictures, scan photos, etc. i switch off the computer as soon as my work is done. I think using computer for a long time is harmful for your health and pocket.

Only when I'm using it, which is most of the day. I never leave it on stand by or even plugged in. It must be really uncomfortable to watch films on a computer. I would never do that I'd rather get comfortable and watch films on my TV. Remember if your computer is on and you are not using it, then that is a waste of electricity. Surely you switch it off, when you're asleep.

Both my desktop and my laptop are usually on 24 hours a day. There is very little reason to switch them off unless I am planning to go away for a few days and therefore will not be using them. If you leave the computer on all the time, it is a good idea to reboot every couple of days in order to release some system resources that Windows does not always make available after closing a program.

My computer is on all the time. I don't turn my computer off, ever. I was told by an IT guy that it is not neccessary to shut your computer down and it just takes more power to restart it after turning it off. He says to just reboot it once every 24 hours. So that is what I do. I am on my computer about 12 hours a day, if not more, between posting in mylot and another forum I use and reading my emails for money. Sometimes I am even on it longer than that. Plus my husband likes to play games on the internet, so he is on it a couple hours a day, too.
