Mine requires a reboot about once a week. I’m pretty sure it’s a RAM problem.
You can always hit internet lock on your firewall program.
You can set the display to auto off. Laptops can also be set to go to sleep mode. But, as MK says, if it screws with your batteries then turn them off or leave the batteries out while you’re in powered up mode (after they charge)
[quote=“Juba”]One good reason for leaving the computer switched on when you’re not using it - so that you can defragment the hard disk(s) or scan for viruses while you are off doing something else.[/quote].
Yes, mine is set to download virus updates and scan each night. It defrags once a week.
I don’t turn it off. There is another thread here somewhere that dealt with this issue. Also, having a Taiwanese SO causes grief. They turn everything off all the time. Drove me nuts having to reboot each day and sometimes I’d lose work. :fume:
