Question about Computers & Internet
I normally leave my computer on. I recently started turning it off at night because one of my associates told me that leaving it on all the time shortens the life span. Well................ lo and behold, I hit the power button to turn it on two days ago and Nothing happened. It wouldn't come on. So today I decided to fix it. I took it apart and blew away the dust and made sure all the wires were still connected. They were. I discovered that if moved the wires coming from the power button, it would come on, but not STAY on. The wires are connected but must be loose. Can you help me?
Hoss and Guest is wrong.... You need to yurn your computer off only if you are not going to be using it for at least a week. BECAUSE Electricity is going up a lot and you should try to save some. (Save the electricity, save the world... Cheerios...)
But it wont harm your computer unless you turn it off inproperly or just for fun start pressing power button over and over just to see lights flicker in the house.

Hoss is wrong. Turn the thing off. Hard drive bearings will not wear if they are not in use, nor will the cheapo sleeve bearings found in most power supplies.

What type of computer is it? Manufacture/partnumber...Your associates are incorrect, it is actually better to leave it on because turning it on and off is harder on a computer. This also depends upon your environment (dust, dirt, moisture, etc.) Companies all around the world leave computer systems up for years, only to shut them down when a part needs repalaced or windows requires a reboot.
