Default do you leave your computer on all night long?

I've often been asked if you should leave your computer turned on during the night. I now have the answer as to what happens to your computer while it is unattended during the night while you sleep.

Seems like a waste of power to leave the computer running all night.

I always put my laptop in hibernate or standby mode.

If you have a desktop, you can still use hibernate and resume your work in the morning.

Plus you have to worry about the fans getting clogged up with dust.

I do it all the time! I just take a few precautions (usually in summers) to make sure that the CPU does not heat up. I leave the fan on.

It won't matter if you keep it on the whole night. The only thing that would become an issue is electricity spikes which can also be taken care of if you have a good UPS and/ or spike guard. I have both, so no issues. My internet is not connected to the UPS, reason being that should your computer shut off abruptly in the missle of a download, some files may become corrupted/ incomplete. Therefore, when the lights do go off, my internet shuts down immediately and then even if the computer switches off, it would be after a certain interval from when the downloading stopped.
