Yep, leave it awake. You can set the monitor to dim, though. It won't run the service programs if it's asleep. Normally, I never shut down my iBook -- just sleep whenever I'm not using it. But occasionally I leave it on all night for this reason.GreeneGirl7 said:Also leave your Mac on overnight from time to time; the Mac OS X runs "janitor" programs during the middle of the night to keep things tip-top automatically.
Leave it awake overnight? Or sleeping? And if sleeping, isn't it good to let it sleep more often than shutting it down anyway?
