Well the title says it all. So just tell me when your PC is on. Today was the first time when I actually left my PC on the whole night so that me and my friend could fly to RAAJ from KLAX. Do any of you leave your computer on and go away while autopilot takes you to your destination?

Quoting Toast (Reply 4): Mine is on almost permanently, it's my only source of cheesy porn music, porn movies, and porn pictures. I leave it on overnight for virus scans, disk defragmenting, and to download even more cheesy porn music, porn movies, and porn pictures.

It's usually on from the time I get up in the morning to when I go to sleep (including when I'm at work), so that'd be about 16 hours a day. I used to have it on 24/7, but as I have a computer which can handle standby mode in a decent way (ie. a Mac ), I don't need it anymore.

My two desktop G4s are on permanently and have been for 2 years now, they run as iTunes servers. My powerbook has a rest once a week, but is on almost permanently otherwise, as I find it irritating to have to go through the trouble of turning off and on.

About 8 hours. But, I usually set the power saver so that it could turn off the monitors after 30 minutes, go on standby 15 minutes later, and hibernate in the next 15. Same with my laptop. Some programs, I think Real Player, doesn't allow my comp to go to standby, but it does let it turn off the monitor. I used to leave my laptop on for hours on end, then one day, the motherboard melted. I was pissed. So my newer laptop now has its own cooling mat and a vornado, considering how hot it gets. Not to mention that the temperature here never gets below 70F. My PC sits by the window to catch a cool breeze when I use it. I have never properly turned off my computers in the past couple of weeks, other than to restart after downloading some stuff.

I hardly ever turn off my laptop (my sole computer at the moment). I just put it into either standby or hibernate mode when I step away from the computer. It probably gets turned off all the way once a week or so.

Monday through Friday, usually between 5-6 hours (Usually from the time I get home from work until right before I go to bed), but on the weekends, more along the lines of 15 hours a day. During the weekends, I may turn it off if I'm going to be gone for any length of time, but typically I will leave it on from the time I wake up until right before I go to bed.

I leave my computer on most of the day when I am at home. I turn it off during the night.
I happen to do music streaming from far distant lands, Hawaiian or Tahitian radio stations come right into my home through the Internet or other stations with other music styles from other countries. It's neat!
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

My computer does not like to turn back on for 48-72 hours after I turn it off. Since I pretty much have to use it every day for research and papers, it is on 24/7 and has been since the third day of school (we lost power the Saturday before 2nd year of law school started and my laptop didn't turn back on until late Tuesday night).
