Turn off.

Only takes like 15ish second to boot and be in Windows and it saves a lot of money in electricity over time.

Sleep. My comp is a laptop, so I just close the lid.

not sure off the top of my head (asus p8something with an overclocked 2500k), know its not the problem though. got an old drive that is causing the slowdown. doesn't really change much.

Leaving it on. Sleep has always been too unreliable.

I used to put it in sleep mode, but I think a recent Windows update messed it up, cause now my PC will turn itself on after a minute or so in sleep mode.

It was the update that said you had to update to stay in support for the April 2018 build or something like that. After ignoring it for a few days, it finally forced me to update and that's when the sleep issue started.
