Can I leave my computer on all the time?

The argument used to be that leaving your computer on will extend its life because a stable operating temperature is less wearing on the components. The opposing view was that power consumption over the life of the device would effectively cancel out savings. With modern hardware and advanced 'Energy Saver' features, it probably doesn't matter much what you do. Nonetheless, we recommend you shutdown your desktop computer overnight or over the weekend unless that time is used to perform automatic maintenance and upgrades.
