Greetings folks! I have my new ram in my computer and it runs GREAT! So I was thinking, here at work we leave our computers on ALL the time in fact the only time I ever shut it down is when I go on Vacation. I dont even bother for weekends. Today at work the IT folks gave me two sticks of ram and said your welcome. I looked and it was two 4 gig ones! So my computer at work went from 2gigs of ram to 8! But my real question is do you all shut down your (HOME) computer? I do simply because I feel its a waste of energy. I will leave it on if I am back up to the cloud or downloading a large file. If you leave it on all the time is there a good reason to do so (like less wear on HDD) or personal preference? As an addendum to this question, is there a benefit to leaving it on or only in 'hibernate'? Thanks much!
