True. That being said, putting your Mac to sleep is preferrable to shutting it down every night.FullmetalZ26 said:If the computer was turned off and on every five minutes in a cold room for several weeks or months straight, perhaps it would be a problem. Those few moments where the electronics quickly heat up from room temperature to operating temperature put the most stress on components, but they're made to be turned on and off every once in awhile. Don't worry about it so much
Besides, since it sounds like you don't turn your iBook off, you probably do put it to sleep sometimes, right? Sleep and shutdown have the same general effect on the heating/cooling of the electronics, as the only thing kept alive in sleep mode is the RAM.
An hour? Not a problem.rye9 said:Well I came home today to find out my dad shut down my iBook, and then i turned it on about an hour later. Isnt that bad for a computer to be shut down and turned back on so quickly? What could it possibly do?
