    Default How long do you keep your computer/laptop on?

    As the title says. Personally I keep mine on till my downloads are finished.

    It's on hibernate most of the time, does that count as being on?

    used to have it on until it crashed, or had to restart it after installing something. now it's off to get fixed, so I'm on an older computer, which buzzes like hell, and makes sleeping next to quite hard. This means I turn it off at around, say 3 or 4 in the morning, when I go sleep, and turn it on at 10 or 11, when I wake up (or get woken up). it's on during the day.

    In that case, always.

    Not really any reason to turn it off it you use hibernate, unless updating or installing something I guess.

    I remember I always thought my computer would over heat if I left it on more than a day.

    I never cut it off. At most I'll leave it on standby for the five or so hours im at school.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
