Should I be turning my computer off daily?

No Comments

There are a few benefits to turning off your computer daily.  Shutting down computers daily

  • Updates:  Many updates need the computer to be shut down completely in order for them to finish downloading. When you don’t turn your computer off, you are not allowing these updates to complete.
  • Eco-friendly:  Turning off your computer can not only save you some money on your electric bill, but it saves energy, which is better for the environment.
  • Saving your battery: Keeping your laptop plugged in and on overnight will cause the battery to degrade over time.  Turning off your computer daily will prolong the lifetime of your battery.

While turning off or restarting your computer daily may not be ideal, Computer Whatever recommends you do it at least once a week because of the aforementioned benefits.  If you have any questions about turning off your computer, give us a call or send us an email!
