How long do you leave your computer on for? Or, is it on all the time? And why?



I usually have my computer on for around 7-8 hours on weekdays and like 12 hours on weekends, especially for those downloads :) I learned some offices and places never turn their computers off, and computers are meant to be on for specific reasons(like updating and stuff), and that it's more taxing turning the computer on and off rather than just keeping it on. But to me, I'd rather have mine off when I'm sleeping.

I go about 2-3 days without turning it off and then I will turn it off for a few hours.

I never turn my computer off >.< lol. The reason for this is because my brother told me not to. He built my computer, and there is a light that wont go off when you turn the computer off, so I have to leave it on all the time so it doesn't burn up inside. I have to sleep with a bright blue flash shining in my room. XD

I turn it off before going to sleep, around 11 pm or 12 am but it is turned on all day, the main reason is because I always forget to do something before turning it off and I don't like to wait like 2 minutes after I turn it back on to start. So what I do is set it in mode of hibernation when i am not using it, and when I come back to use it, all I have to do is move the mouse or press a key to have it right the way it was ^^

So my PC is actually turned on almost all day, and turned off during my bed time...

It's off for night time when I'm sleeping, which is about... 4 hours?

My main desktop is on prety much all day seeing as I am on it almost all day. Though I have it configured to go to sleep after 45 minutes of idle time. This saves energy and can help to reduce ware and tare on the hardware.

Either my computer stays on all day if i need to use it in the morning or is off when i'm sasleep which can be between ten and two hours.

It's on for 16 hours every day. I have to turn it off when I sleep or it'd get too hot in my room and I wouldn't be able to sleep.

Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays it'll run about 24 hours non-stop (of course I'm not at it the whole time).
Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays range from 3 hours to 7 hours.

05-01-2010, 06:24 PM
I never shut it off in fact I never shut any of my computers off why? well for one it's not really my decision, but mainly because macs, when they are on sleep, they take up little to no energy.

Miss Moonlight

Usually all the time. Days, months, years. I've had this desktop for over 6 years now.

Of course, this requires good maintenance of the system and the inside -- I vacuum/dust and generally clean it out once every 6 months. It's set to go on screensaver every 30 minutes.

As long as I do that and frequently restart/shut it down once in while, it's fine and runs smoothly.

Mine is on basically all day, except for when I'm asleep.. then its on stand-by.

It's on all day.
I just put it to sleep and turn off the monitor during the day while I'm at school,
and while I'm sleeping.

05-22-2010, 02:33 AM
In the morning I use it for 5 hours while in night, its 7 hours..... A total of 12 hours all in all. But if in school days, I only open this for 2-3 hours.

My laptop's on basically all day. It's sorta my lifeblood, so I only turn it off when I go to bed at night, or if I have to go somewhere (and even then sometimes I just leave it on).

My computer is on when I awake and off when I asleep. Even if I have to go somewhere, it's always switched on.

the home computer we turn it off as soon as we are finished or if someone needs to use it we leave it on for short periods of time
my laptop which is the only computer i use for AF is only on when i need it.

Furore
06-04-2010, 10:23 AM
Mine's on while I'm at home, but if going anywhere bar a quick visit to the shops or something I turn everything off. Powerboards connected to powerboards coupled with a wire jungle leave me hesitant to leave the power on unless neccesary.

I have a laptop but the charger cord is in storage. Well actually its my fiance's laptop. But when he goes to basic he is giving it to me so I can work on my book. And I use the internet on his backflip phone.....anyways. when we had the cord it was on all the time.

I'll turn it off when there are nothing to download, doing maintenance/repair/upgrade and I'm not in the house more than one night. Other than that, I'll leave it on and the red LED fan help me sleep at night with music player on sleep mode.

I only turn it off when I'm not downloading anything, mostly I am, and they are pretty big files so I leave it on a lot.

I rarely turn off my laptop, except when I need to take it somewhere else or won't use it for more than a day. Otherwise, I leave it on Standby if it's not actively doing anything for me.

Usually several weeks at a time. I generally leave it on over-night to torrent and I'm using it for a good portion of the day. I'll reboot it for updates, and shut it off if I have plans that involve me being out all day.

11-24-2010, 01:06 AM
Well, I would say "forever", but then that would imply that I never change my computer, that it can last forever, that I'll never die, and that the universe will never end.


In seriousness, I do shut it down every now and then. But that doesn't happen all that often... at all.

The longest time I've had my computer on and connected to the internet was like 30 something days, according to aim. But usually I keep it on unless I get the red lines, and then I turn it off for a day or two.

Usually check it when i get up, go to lectures then it goes on from whenever i get back to whenever i go out/go to bed. Weekends are the same just without the lectures... I know its bad for to be on it all the time, but theres honestly nothing else to do around here!

Usually about 2-3 hours a day, I usually just left it on all them time but that started to hurt the battery.

11-25-2010, 08:41 PM
Mine is on most of the day, as I tend to think of scattered things and hit the pc to research and or goof off in my bored down time. If I am working it is always off, day's off it is on from time I wake till time I go to bed so.

DarkMoonPrince

Probably about five or six hours a day, on average.



I don't see how all of you can leave your computers on 24/7 ... if I did that I would not only kill my electric bill but also my motherboard O_o;

Well it isn't really bad for your computer if it stays on. And my computer goes into sleep mode when I don't use it so my computer's components cool down and my electric bill isn't as high as you'd think it would be.

When I go to school, I put my computer to sleep. Then I get home and it's on until I go to bed where I put it to sleep again until I wake up. Then I either turn it on for bit to check some things out, or leave it off until I come back home from school again.

niKopol
01-10-2011, 01:35 AM
I leave mine on 24/7, with the exception of restarting or upgrading parts.

Personally, in my belief, whether you use it or not it will still age. If your computer is idle its not using anything or moving any parts, except electricity, and even then "vampire appliances" still drain electricity when off. Turning it off only really applies to overheating or if you are worried about image burn.

For me i have my laptop on for a while, but luckily i spent cash on a Targus twin-fan laptop cooler to keep it from overheating. Usually i put in on standby if i'm gonna go somewhere, and shut it off if i'm going to sleep or taking it to class.

It's a laptop, and actually I haven't shut it down for at least a month or so o.o' I only put it to sleep, not complete shut down because I want it already on when I wake up in the morning instead of waiting for it to load up. It only shuts down when I forget to plug in the charger lol

Well my home PC is usually on for about 6 or so hours on weekdays. On weekends it could be as much as 16 hours. I don't turn it off unless I'm going to bed.

As for my laptop, I don't have wireless available at my house so I can only really use it at school. I'm on it for about 6 hours altogether on weekdays.

Don't know. For hours atleast since Im not shuting it down even if Im not using it, even if im over at a friends place / or out at some other place for some hours I usually still leave the computer on - but in 'stand by mode'. Also Im studying distance courses right now so instead of going to the University for some hours for lessons Im spending them infront of the computer istead (since I have my lessons over the internet), reading articles and writing essays and other tasks so.... well, yeah hours is the least thing it's on for at the least.

Right now Im preparing some lessons in practical rhetoric for a class while listening to the radio in the background and yeah - I need my computer for that. After that I need to read some longer essays on the internet about news in the way of learning children how to read (and increase their "lust" for learning / desire to read). Still going to need the computer for that... uf uf this is going to be one of those slow days. -_- Goddie for atleast having Spotify. (>_^)

I turn my computer off once a week to clean the filters and negate the dust build-up. All I need to do is flip off the LEDs and adjust some fan speeds and it's dead silent so no worries there. If I see any particular wear and tear in the parts I'll adjust my habits, but so far so good.

Laptops on the other hand I've learned to be conservative with the hard way. So much more prone to overheating/fan damage.

24-7 although it is in sleep a lot of the time, because that's what it does when I close it.

I used to leave it on 24/7 but now I leave it on about 10 hours every day.
(Now it doesn't make a whirring noise every single time I put it out of sleep modexD)

There is a very rare chance I shut my computer. I always leave it on some when I feel like playing on it. I don't have to wait forever for it to come on. I only put it to sleep sometimes.

Since I'm so obsessed with games and manga's, the longest I could remember is that I left my laptop for a week.

I only power down my computer when I leave the house for longer than one night, so most fridays I turn it off, and sundays it's on again.

Though... almost immediately my laptop is turned on, or I'm on my cellphones network... so.. uh... I'm not technically offline... ever... unless I'm sleeping...

But my computer is definitely turned off :D

I feel kind of pathetic now XD

I never turn mine off. From what I've been told, turning off your computer daily can cause it to run slower. That and I don't feel like waiting 20 minutes for it to start up -_-

A few weeks ago my boot up screen when I first turn it on lasted about 5 minutes. So basically after that event happened I always have it on, unlessI have to shut down for an important reason, 24/7.

If you haven't spend that same week on your laptop 24/7, we will spare you ;3.

How long my laptop is on? It depends on my location. At my moms it's on like 5 hours a day, at my dads I leave it on several days in a row, leeching my downloads. I'm an IT student, so I spend a lot of time on my laptop T_T

You won't have to worry about that. The person who told you that doesn't know computers very well.

On topic, I never turn off my PC/laptop. So technicially, it's been on for years :)

I leave my computer on for about 10-12 hours then restart it so the RAM process's will reconfigure and make my pc a tad faster..

My laptop is always on and plugged in unless i'm on the go, then I try to find my dads thing that gives me internet on the go. So I suppose you can say i'm on it all day everyday unless I have to eat or chores or something like that comes up. I also have a job, so whenever i'm not working also I will be on my laptop.
