    ...if you don't, should you.


    is your normal everyday pc really capable of running constantly 24/7 weekin weekout.

    i can't remember ever turning off my laptop since about february this year.


    before getting a laptop it was the same with my pc i never turned off, but over the years i have had a few harddrives pack in. maybe due to this.

    if your system is going to consistently left on then should you pay extra for a system which can handle it. i know people custom build systems for gaming but what about BT

    My pc runs 24/7 until there is a bad thunder storm coming my way. About the only thing that fail was the power supply and the processor cooling fan.

    as bittorrent is the reason i leave my pc on 24/7 then it does have something to do with bittorrent. what i am trying to get at is whether other bt users leave on there system consantly and does it cause problems

    I use mine in the day and late into the night but I always turn if off when i'm not using it. My elec bills are high enough without having a pc on all year round

    I leave mine on for weeks at a time and when I turn it off only leave it that way for a few hours. I haven't had any problems with it and I've been doing this for 2 years now.
