Not picking on you,really:), I just saw this as a great opportunity to mention the SEARCH button on the top right.

Just about any time I have a question that is about computers I try that first to see if the info I want is already around.
If it isn't, or my question is not answered I start a thread.
90% of the time my question is answered.

Off. Until I find a solution where I can't hear a peep outta both computers in my room, they'll stay off when I go to bed :)

I've got one in my bedroom that is my fiance's and one in my living room. Our electric bill is nuts so we turn them off whenever we can.

Also, my monster in my living room is friggin loud!! It keeps me up even with my door closed.
I guess 9 fans will do that though. ;)

So, no. Also, for the time being im running Windows, not a great system for leaving on all the time.

I have had one of my rigs folding on win2k for 2 months without any problems. Might be time to check for software updates. :rolleyes:

I have an Alienware 51-m and it stays on most of the day. I turn it off at night because i'm always affraid that one of my brothers will come down stairs and put something to block my vents.
