I'm afraid I have to admit I leave it on... It's not good, I know. However, my PC has always had this weird issue from back around when I got it where it doesn't always boot up properly and it is really slow booting up and then it also doesn't run properly after it has booted up. So whenever it does that, I have to keep on restarting it until it boots up at the proper normal speed. Which can take forever, and get this if I try to shut it off for the Windows updates and it boots back up slow, I won't be back on my PC for many hours because that takes forever.

I always shut down my laptop when I'm done, unless I'm going to use it again shortly (i.e. within the next hour or so).

I used to shut it off at night but my computer is now 5 years old and takes forever to restart so I leave it on and restart it every few days.
When I go back to the US for Xmas, I am buying a new one.

I leave it on. My mom turns off and unplugs ALL of her electronics when she isn't using them...computer mouse, TV, you name it, and it drives me batty. She's afraid there will be an electrical surge during a storm and the house will catch on fire. Or something
