Ok, maybe I should stop here. And it stopped. And I think you didn't read that I kept waking up, not the PC.

Unless I snore, I wake up the PC and it snores back... Is that even possible???

A couple of pounds, give or take.


My computer has learned a new trick. It likes to grow spiders. Spiders that like to startle unsuspecting hands as they reach for components....

Sorry, your avatar made me think you aren't a man who likes to joke.
Anyway you were right! Look at what I found in the power settings:

When i'm home for the week, my notebook runs or sleeps 24/7. Once i get back to the mine, it runs/sleeps mostly 24/7. One of my desktops runs 24/7 when home, else it gets turned off.
My other desktop runs 24/7 as it has lots of media and is hooked up to the home theatre stuff.

Wife does pretty much as she pleases with hers. I think she has 4 of them, but only 2 are on 24/7 doing stuff that keeps filling up the hard drives, whilst she sleeps.

We used to do folding, but we got a bit carried away and had 40 comps running in the games room. (another story here). I think the Handbrake got up to number 50 and amassed around 9 million points. Too many drama's and too many $$$$$$.

I hope it is home often enough. I don't like computers who don't want to stay home.
