    I keep mine on 24/7,
    I don&#39;t really think you PC use enough electricity to worry about your bill, I have two PCs, the main one I keep on all the time, but I used to keep both on all the time.
    The electric bill is virtually the same now as it was when I kept both PCs on, so I don&#39;t think you have to worry about crazy electric bills, just because of your PC.

    I leave mine on all the time. As for power consumption issue, look into the power management systems that are built into your PC.
