Sorry about the late poll this week, but here is the poll. This time we are using an older poll again because much has changed since we last asked, and on to the question .....

I typically try to reboot at least every other week, but it can be a bit more or less often depending on driver/system updates and the like.

It's hard to say how often I restart. I used to turn it off every night, but now that I'm folding on it 24/7 it usually stays on until there's a Windows update or until I trip the circuit breaker, which seems to be about every other week. lol2.gif

I don't get BSOD's, but I agree with the rest. I only reboot if Windows (Vista x64) update or a piece of software I'm installing is forcing me to. And then I try to postpone it as much as I can. I think this option should be added to the poll.

 

BTW, for some reason my XP laptop at work requires me to reboot it every couple of days or it just doesn't work well.

I'm in the several times per week mainly due to playing with the Bios or installing some kind of software updates.

I only reboot when needed, usually more than a month.

Only when its needed....like a windows update

Since my power costs are somewhat high I leave my machine off unless I'm using it...so it essentially gets turned off every night and turned back on whenever I get home the next day. If I wasn't paying so much for power I'd just leave it on 24/7.
