Windows 7: Question about leaving the Computer ON all the times!

29 Oct 2011   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

I have several desktop PCs in the office and they are very rarely turned off.

The only hard drive failures I've suffered in the last five or more years have been with the laptop which, naturally, does get turned off when I transport it.

So it seems that it's safe to keep the PC running and set the power sleep mode to "never" :) thank you guys for being very helpful.. but more advise and opinions are welcome :)

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

I have mine set to Never on the sleep mode and leave it on all the time except for maybe a reboot once a week. I have my monitor set to turn off after 20 minutes. I leave it on because of convenience and because I do my backups at night. I have never had a problem doing this.

BSOD when leaving computer to sleep
I've ignored this problem because it really hasn't come up much, but recently it's been happening about every other night if not every night when I put my laptop to sleep. I think I've attached the zip file with my minidumps correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
