Should I turn my computer off at the end of the day?


I don't actually have a problem; just a question. Is it best to leave my computer always on (just sign off) or should it be shut down completely at night when not in use?

Thank you.

Sorry, I don't know all the answers to your questions above. If you can answer my question, thank you. If not, fine.

In our opinion, it is better to turn the computer off if it isn't going to be used within a couple of hours or so The computer wastes electricity and also, Windows will develop problems after long periods of staying on.
