Is your computer "on" 24/7 ?

by Mac McMullen / January 10, 2007 11:12 AM PST

Steve Bass at PC World recently discussed the age old argument
of leaving a computer turned on all the time, or turning it off at night
and back on in the morning. This is an argument that few will be able
to change mind-sets of others.

One of his arguments for turning it off at night is his presentation of
what goes on with the monitor screen during the night, if the computer
is left on: http://www.xs4all.nl/~jvdkuyp/flash/see.htm

Bet you had no idea..........
