Default Re: On or Off?

Every time you power cycle your computer, the capacitors charge and discharge, which wears them out a bit faster.

I generally turn my computer off if I won't be using it for an extended period (say, going away for the weekend or very busy after work the next day) and otherwise just turn off my monitor.
