I heard from someone that putting a pc to sleep is bad but I’m not sure if that’s true.
Is is true that there’s somewhat of a power surge when you turn a pc on which can damage it?No need to shut it down every day, putting it to sleep is just as effective at minimising wear-and-tear and saves that long wait for it to boot up when you next want to use it.
Rebooting it occasionally will flush the RAM contents and reset any little glitches.
Putting your PC to sleep is not "bad". It's very useful.
A good surge protector is a must!If your house wiring is standard and you have an OK PSU there is no power surge that will damage your PC. The power delivered through the wall and PSU is regulated so the power surge thing is just an old wives tale.
Your not going to get a real answer on this their no 100% way of doing it.I heard from someone that putting a pc to sleep is bad but I’m not sure if that’s true.
I didn't know that.Here in the EU we don't have that issue and no-one needs an extra surge protector as it is already installed in every home as standard, no-one would even think of it being an issue. The standards in other parts of the world are not to the same standard but if just turning on your PC was a massive danger....then it is a wonder so many get sold.
