Do you recommend turning computer off?
For Desktop computers (non-portable) , if you choose to turn the computer off we recommend that you only turn it off once per day (like at night when sleeping or when work is done for the day). It is usually OK to leave the computer on.
We recommend using the energy saving settings such as sleep mode and turning off monitor when not in use.
For Portable computers you may want to turn off or put in sleep mode when transporting. We also recommend using energy saving settings. If temperatures are cold outside, you may want to wait to turn the computer on or waking it up.
With computers and devices that have minimal or no moving parts (uses solid state drive or flash memory) it is ok to turn them off (shut down) more often, such as turning your smart phone off while at a meeting.
