Should I leave my computer on or turn it off?

FAQ

If you have a desktop computer, please leave your computer powered on; simply log off at the end of the day. It is the times that the computer is on but you are not using it that backups and software security updates happen. Your computer uses very little energy when idling, and our default energy management settings put your monitors to sleep after a short time.

You should restart your computer about once a week.
