    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to mac and wanted to know if it's okay to leave my timecapsule on 247.
    It gets pretty warm as is, so will this affect the life of it, or would leaving it on decrease the life of the HD?

    Shouldnt be a problem what so ever - it is designed for it!

    Regarding the heat, keep it out of direct sunlight and it'll be fine!

    Routers are made to be left on all the time. The hard drive spins down after inactivity.

    thanks for the responses, the time capsule for 2-4 days was hot to the touch, but now a week later it's running much cooler. awesome product now that I sold my Lenovo x61s it's time to buy a MBP first mac in my 40 years.
