    Shutdown every time.
    It suits my personal hobby of walking around the house turning off lights, that had been left on for unoccupied rooms.

    Hibernation. Saves so much time (Especially on work PC when outlook/Visual studio take an age to start even on SSD due to disk encryption) and Windows 10 is really good at it.

    Re: QOTW: Shut down or sleep?

    As most here state with todays hardware and Windows start time is so small that a fresh boot is nothing time wise and as for continuing where you were , saving and bookmarking covers most situations. Years back hibernating or even running 24/7 was advised for important PC's as the main culprit for PC failure was power supplys giving up the ghost due to constant surge when switching off and on. These days apart from being more powerful are much more resilient and reliable , even the budget ones. If I remember correctly most standard supplies back then were about 350 Watts and my main service call outs were inevitably power supply failures. Each to their own but other than a long task going on and leaving the PC for more than about 20 mins I'll turn mine off every time.

    Shutdown, unless I'm working on something, in which case hibernate.

    Sleep works but: (1) depends on certain Apps which get unstable (2) and how many hours are you planning to continue with work, work make sense for the environment and a possible loss of grid power.

    Shutdown and turn screen, speakers and PC off at the plug for me. Saving electricity and electrical safety and all that!

    Have to say at 69 years old I'm old fashioned and close it down fully although I do leave it on usually all day.

    Re: QOTW: Shut down or sleep?

    My laptop gets sleep all the time.

    For my desktop, i have to shutdown as theres a bug with something in my PC that'll randomly wake the PC every couple of hours sometimes, and as the PC resuming blasts the GPU fan at 100% for several seconds theres a high chance of it waking me up...
