    I have been getting mixed answers about this. Should I just put my iMac to sleep every night, or shutdown and reboot in the morning? Please put your answer as well as what you do! Thanks! :cool:

    Sleep mode for sure. Macs actually defrag themselves when in sleep mode.

    Even so, there is no need whatsoever to ever shut down. I had my last iMac on for almost 5 years straight except when I had to restart because of an update and the like.
