Energy Myth #3

It’s better to leave a PC running because continually turning them on and off wears out the equipment.

Wrong. Regularly turning a PC off not only saves energy but also extends the machine’s life due to a reduction in mechanical wear. Manufacturers now recommend that users turn off their machines when not being used.
These are great for work to stick to monitors to remind people to turn off their computers before they leave-

Saving energy also helps to extend the life of your computer. Sounds like a good idea to me.
