I didn't know anyone even considered doing different. I wouldn't be able to stand not having it on 24/7.

Mine has been on for over 3 years. I'm quite sure 99.999 percent of people leave them on so.... (wondering what the other .0001 is doing)

Mine's always on 24/7 too, but I'll occasionally logon to the router and do a reboot through the router diagnostics to clear it out. Keeps it running smooth especially if download speeds slowdown a bit or I get a bit of packet loss.

We have frequent enough power outages to take care of that.

maybe to save power people might turn it off.

if i didn't do so much p2p i would think about connecting it to my "smart" ups that turns off peripherals when my desktop is off.

won't leaving it on forever shorten the lifespan of the product? Like do u guys ever consider turning it off when your family goes to bed?
