Do you put it in sleep mode or shut it down if you plan on leaving it off for longer than 2 hours?
i never turn mine off.
sleep... I have a ton to torrents seeding... I never shut down, only reset once in a while...
Always sleep it. Don't ever really turn it off, even when traveling through airports, etc.
You realize you aren't seeding if your laptop is sleeping, right?
i never shutdown a mac laptop unless 1) update 2) upgrading/changing hardware
i just close the lid
I just leave mine on and turn my monitors off
I just close the lid, everytime. It maybe gets rebooted once a month, if that.
When you guys say close the lid, do you mean just close without selecting the 'sleep' option?
I always shutdown. Im guessing its a bad idea?
my laptop isn't my main machine so I may use it once every couple days. in that case, I always shut it down. when im traveling and it becomes my main machine, I just let it sleep
yes, when you close the lid it'll go to sleep automatically. it's not a pc where the computer freaks out.
only time i'd say shut down is if you're not going to use the computer for a week. Anything less than that just close the lid and it'll go to sleep automatically... there will be a little battery drain, but nothing dramatic.
