Yes, it will be fine. I leave my PC on for...uh, I don't actually turn it off. Last time I did was because I restarted for an update. Outside of that, unless the power goes off or something, I don't turn off the PC. I just turn off my monitors, at most.

Not even put it in sleep mode?

Nope. I leave my PC downloading or uploading stuff as well as sorting my email, so I don't sleep it. As I said, I only turn off the monitors. And even that's just because for some reason they sometimes decide to wake up randomly and other times they refuse to go into low power mode.

I mean, people do leave them on without issue, but personally I really don't like leaving electronics on when I'm out, even if it's for 30 minutes. If I'm away for a few days, then the plugs come out of the sockets.

I'm probably just paranoid though. It'll probably be fine, I just wouldn't go making a habit of it.

I leave mine on 24/7. I only reboot when she tells me she needs to be rebooted or if I think it will fix some issue I'm having with an application. As long as there are no lightning storms in the area, it should be fine. If I were leaving for a few days I would have unplugged it completely, just to be safe.

I have never turned off my PC, ever. At most I'll restart to install an update.

Well, my previous PC was on 24x7 for around 4 years and my home server I build 10 years ago has been running non-stop for, 10 years, I think you'll "ok" leaving your PC on for 4-5 days.

The eerie silence when my computer is off gives me anxiety.
Isn't that right, Zach?
