    Which is better for the battery? Do you guys put it in sleep at night when you're not using it or do you switch it off completely?

    Any other tips on saving battery other than the obvious like turning the brightness down etc.

    Neither is better. Use your computer how you want.

    Personally I Hibernate mine when I leave it for longer than a day. Any other time it is left turned on. But I don't pay the electricity bills, the Ministry of Defence does :cool:
