    How long does your PC stay on for???

    Am going to bed, but just thought of this for a poll, my PC gets switched on in the morning (bout 8am) and doesn't get switched off 'til I/we go to bed, which could be anything up to 18hrs later!! What about the rest of you folks?? I was reliably (supposedly) informed, that it's more cost effective and safer, for your PC to be left on, rather than switching it on and off all day! What's the opinion on here??

    turn it off most nights, or during the day if i go out and now it won't be used for a couple of hours, but usually just leave it turned on.
