    I work on my PC, and I have maybe 60 windows open at the end of my day, so I just sleep. To reboot takes about 20 seconds, but opening the windows again, and getting to the same place, can easily take 30 minutes.

    I leave it running, because this allows updates to happen overnight, not right when I want to use it.

    This is one thing worth pointing out if you have Fast boot enabled then shutdown isn't shutdown, it's closer to hibernate and if you want to do a clean boot you need to disable it or restart, not shutdown

    personally I shutdown my pc, even if I don't have fastboot an ssd is plenty fast, my work laptop will sometime be put to sleep at the end of the day, depends what I'm doing and always shutdown on a friday

    Re: QOTW: Shut down or sleep?

    Use the power options to sleep during the day but shutdown at night. I have to say though, the Power Option shutdown is a lottery as usual, and it's the Windows update program that can stop the sleeping. Built a brand new PC with all the latest bits, and with only windows itself installed it failed to shutdown. Spent £1100 on a PC everything worked as it should out of the box, not a thing wrong.......... Just let down by Windows!

    Re: QOTW: Shut down or sleep?

    Shut down, PC is in the same room I sleep in and although it's pretty quiet, it'd be enough to stop me sleeping properly. Being water cooled I like to give my PC a quick once over before switching it on, as you said in your piece, it only takes a few seconds to boot up...........

    Always been in the shutdown camp with my desktop PC but have started using the laptop next to it (my second screen/YT screen, running Chrome OS) by just flipping the lid.

    Shut down, once had a custom loop spring a leak in the middle of the night. If I hadn't been awake going to the loo right at the time it happened it would have been expensive.
