So now that I've given up on a 4 yr warranty to bring me through 4 years of college, I suppose I need to worry about how to keep this thing running as long as possible. I know this has been beat to death, but is it better to leave it on or off? If I set it to turn off the HDD and screen after 20 mins and go into standby after an hr or so, is that as good as turning it off? It makes it much more convenient when I want to use it again. Should I do one on off cycle a day? My desktop runs 24/7 since I got it in 01 and its still running perfect. Makes it so convenient to use when its already on. I feel like my notebook will break at any moment and don't know what I'd do if it breaks that senior year in college. I kinda hope some stuff breaks in the 3rd year so I can get new components that pull me through to the end lol. Any suggestions?
