| I leave my home PC on all of the time (except during thunderstorms, which
| are rare here).  IMO, the energy used is less than the wear and
| tear on the
| hardware by powering it down and back up.  (Same thing applies to
| AS/400s.)

Btw, I was told same for tubes as PCs and such, by a CE long time ago...
Had a couple cases where the switch broke, which *probably* cost about the
same to replace, as electric used (in power-saver mode).
