    When you leave home for work and no one is home all day, do you switch all your stuff off at the wall or leave it on stand by. I always worry having it on might burn the house down. Discuss cheers

    I'm not joking now, but my PC has been on for like 3 months now :x3:
    I only shut down the monitor, when it's time to sleep.
    All my guitar pedals and stuff, has been on for like... A year?
    :laugh:

    Well, since there is barely anything to watch on TV anymore, I canceled the TV license many years ago.
    It's not even plugged into the wall or the antenna. I may, on a very rare occasion plug it in to watch a DVD, or to play on my PS2 or N64 :D

    I just worry about my house burning down but most people I know leave everything on standby.

    Well, I know in my case, it's really stupid and dangerous to leave the stuff on.
    It's better to be safe than sorry, thats for sure.

    Well, hard to choose for myself. It really depends on what it is ... But most if I turn on the computer in the morning it will be on for the whole day. :roflmao:

    No I mean if you leave the house for the whole day but after doing some more research, I think I'm gonna start leaving it in standby, especially my tv.

    I'm shutting everything for financial reasons. In a year or a few years it will be a few beers worth of savings :D
