>>52917563 Even on an SSD my computer doesn't boot that quickly because I run programs on startup. Email, IM, btsync, torrents. It's fairly fast but sleep is faster. And anybody using a hard drive is just suffering.
>>52917525 putting it to sleep fucks up all sort of crap. For instance when having multiple monitor if any of these are off when it comes back then the system will assume it was never there to begin with and completely mess up the windows layout.
Also some applications outright crash and others like firefox start leaking memory for no reason at all.
>>52917563 because opening up the same applications every single time I turn on the pc is tedious and annoying
>>52917686 >Windows 8 Anyway, just be smart and with a windows 10/ lightweighted distro you can get your computer to boot quite fast, like really fast.
For example, I don't have any (or the least possible) things running on startup, because I don't always need them (and sometimes just power my pc on for a quick file search or something like that). You can just make a script for all the neat programs you want to start up automatically, that way you can choose to run it or not, depending on your use.
>>52917382 Repeatedly bringing electronics up to operating temp and letting them cool down again can shorten the lifespan of components and loosen solder joints. Of course, it's not that bad with modern shit, and computers are obsolete in a few years anyway.
>>52920195 This sounds like it could possibly be true...
I've always thought a good way to do backup would be to power down hard disks when they're not doing backups. Is it more likely that the opposite is true? could you use some kind of hardware to keep disks spinning and occasionally writing to elongate life? that doesnt sounds super helpful
I always use sleep because I don't want to restart IRC, hardware monitoring and whatever shit I have going on. It costs me next to nothing to keep my computers running all day at idle, I don't think sleep even registers on the electricity bill.
I've got my OS installed on an SSD. It only takes ~15 seconds to fully boot into the OS. Can you people seriously not spare 15 seconds of your life in order to not only save money on power, but help conserve the environment? Fucking pathetic.
>>52922389 Oh Jesus Christ, just last week I opened up an old server that ran under a desk non stop for about a year, it looked fucking disgusting. Full of cobwebs and caked all over with dust. I'm surprised it didn't all burst into flames
>main desktop hibernate >htpc beside tv sleep, because there's a button for it on my K400r and it won't wake it up from hibernate >laptops sleep/hibernate >other computers that aren't used daily them I just shut off
