Question is why would you leave your computer on if you're not using it in the first place? If you're downloading something then why not set up a task in the task manager to shutdown your computer when its done? Just do what I do. Create a batch file, call it "shutdown" and then tell your task manager to run that program at a certain time. Seeing im a nice guy, I'll even give you the code: @ Echo Off shutdown.exe /s /t 00 Echo off - means this will not display a message Shutdown.exe - shutdown command which is executable /s - code for a shutdown /t - timer 00 means doesnt use a timer before the shutdown. GG. - you have a gaming computer so im sure you know what I mean by GG :)

Shut it down. Some people think shutting a computer down harms it for some reason, when it really doesnt . it will also cool down

I will put on standby if I'm gone for less than 2 hrs. Shut down for longer. The better graphics cards use a lot of power and can get cooked easily when in use. What better way to hurry this along than leaving it turned on ? And not in use....
