I'm wondering if it's better or worse for the computer to leave it on all the time? I'm running a new PC with XP. a P4 2.53Ghz, 512RDRAM, and the rest of the normal goodies. Monitor is a 21" Viewsonic. Right now, I have all the power settings set to "Never" but my monitor shuts off after an hour. I've heard it both ways - that it's better for electronics such as computers to be left on all the time instead of turning off and on....or that it's better to save wear & tear by shutting down when they won't be used for a while. I have DSL, running Norton AV, ZoneAlarm on it. Any advice appreciated! Thanks!
