    Linus made a video about this awhile back personally I usually always keep my computer running. I read awhile back it actually puts more stress on the parts when you start it up and shut it down then just leaving it run.

    I just let it sleep most the time. If it's inactive for like an hour it does it on its own. If I leave town for any reason I shut it down.

    False. Read up-thread. Youd have to turn it on and offf every five minutes for years to do anything detrimental to the parts.

    7 SP3. Though it could have been backported to 7 from 8, as SP3 came out after 8 IIRC.
