I generally only shut down my Mac when an update requires a restart.
So do I.
But I just let my computers go to sleep.
...why keep something on while not operating?
wowers, that sounds like a taylor swifter song about her recent break up with a techie guy at IBM "You have 6 desktops with code editors, spreadsheets, documents, browsers, email, but aint no time fer lil ol meeeeeeeeeeeee!"Because for me I have 6 desktops with code editors, spreadsheets, documents, browsers, email, etc all sitting there for me to walk up and continue where I left off when I wake the computer. Matter of work style I suppose.
I literally have some of MY Mac minis that have not been shut down since 2010/2011.The new Mac mini is my daily computer. Does everyone shut it down at night or just let it go into rest mode? If you aren't going to be using it until the following night, would you shut it down? Curious what everyone does
