Re: do you leve your computer on at night

I have one computer thats always on 24/7, I leave my other computer on as well if there is a big release.
But yes, it is using some electricity especially my "gaming pc" @ ~180W idle. smile

Either the battery or the power transformer will burn out.

Re: do you leve your computer on at night

Generally 24/7, although the occasional microsoft required reboot is done and i always switch the machine off if out of the house for more than a day.

Generally, I'll have them on but I won't leave them running all night.

Because i host game servers i have 1 pc on 24/7 and it has been like that 3 years now about the electric bill for 1 pc stand and run 24/7 it not cost so much it is a 500 Watt.

Re: do you leve your computer on at night

When there are few other seeders ...

... in relation to the number of peers, I leave the machine on over night, so that people can leech what they need from me while I am sleeping/working. If there are entire armies of other seeders, I turn my machine off at night, to save the environment, and continue seeding the next day.
