While you are sleeping

I'm interested to know if you guys turn off your comp, put it on 'stand by' or leave it on all night forever and ever.

I put mine on stand by cos if I leave it on, I can kinda hear it and can't sleep.

Ours goes off at night. No point in leaving it on really.

I have a laptop so I just shut it and set it on the floor. This puts it to sleep.

I voted turn it off, but then I re-read the question and I actually usually have it on all night, but I turn it off in the morning when I go to bed.

I leave the computer on....but humming never bothers me cause my bedroom is a good distance away from the kitchen....and I have two noisy cats too....I mean sometimes. Overall I have a quiet computer...which I'm also thankfull for

(My parents leaving their radios on annoys me to no end cause they like to leave it on when I'm trying to get some sleep Yea...my bedroom is right next to theirs )

I turn mine off. I figure since I won't be using while I'm asleep I might as well save whatever few cents of electricity it would take to be on standby all night.

I used to turn mine off. But I read somewhere that computers actually consume more electricity during the booting process. That's why I put mine on stand by now. Not really sure which is the most economical option.

Sometimes I leave it on... if I have programs that I need updated but don't really want to run them during the day I'll leave it on, but otherwise I usually turn it off.

Does anyone know if leaving a laptop on overnight is healthy? Or is it the same as leaving a desktop computer on?

I shut the laptop so it goes to sleep, the other computers just stay on all the time. It makes me nervous if any of them are off.
