    Your PC lives longer if you do not shut it down much..its better to keep it online 24/7 unless there is a an rain storm or tornadoes or something...shutting down and restarting shortens its live...and the reason you get better sources at night is because if u live here in america..lets say itds 11 pm....well in places like england they are awake to because its probably like 7 am so thats the time that the most people are on Kazaa.

    lol twister. i left my pc for 48 hrs straight and everything slow down. not d/l but programs. like it take forever to load sometin after it been on for more than 24hrs. and if i burn a vcd, the vcd will freeze during playback and then resume then freeze at a regular interval. but if its off for the ngiht everthing including the vcd is fine. should i get better cooling or what.

    u should leave your pc on all the time because of thermal damage thats done to the eletronics as they heat up as long as you got good fan and clean off any dust once in while leaving your pc on will make it last longer.
    u can put your pc in a low power mode by using the power options in your control panel
