Of course it's safe. If you had a problem with your pc overheating, that would be an issue. I have generated files that lasted 12 hours. You can also install software to monitor your pc temp. All in all, everything should be fine.

Why would that be a problem to run your computer for 24 or 48 hours straight? Do you realize many servers are running, under load, 24x7? Some people (not me) even leave their PCs on all the time too.

LOL. Like Deacon said, I have 6 servers up and running constantly.

I have a relative who has not switched his desktop off for a couple of years - no problems.

Most bios will allow for temp safety settings in bios if that is a concern...
