OK… it’s about power saving versus keeping the hardware running longer.
I was told that every time you turn on your computer from an off state, the start up puts stress on the internal components. Before sleep and hibernate was invented the wisdom was to keep it on all day.
Now, I hibernate and sleep my desktop and laptop, shutting it down at the end of the day.
I’m always in and out. access my desktop and could use it twenty minutes later or and hour later. I’m not sure if I task must be done on the computer and not my mobile phone. So, if I that is the case, I could be turning it on and off all day.
So, assumed that hibernate or sleep are the best energy saving options that put less stress on my computer.
I really don’t care about waiting for it to boot up. Yes, faster is better but I care more about putting stress on my hardware.
But my opposition says I should just turn it off. It makes no difference.
So, tell me… has things changed? Can I just turn on and shut off my computer several times a day or is is better to use the standby modes.
The articles I found don’t take hardware wear and tear much to account as they did in the old days. I need evidence supporting your conclusion. Please link…
