then when you want to use it again you turn it on.
If your computer "takes to long" to turn off and back on then you need to pay some one to fix it for you or need to get a new one.

How is that any different than if I'm using my computer & the power goes out? Worse? Same?
In this case it is the same (and is only for DESKTOPS as a laptop goes to battery power and will not be affected until the battery goes dead, then it too will crash).

I have hybrid sleep enabled, and I can hibernate the computer any time I want to. Under the advanced power settings, I went to the "power buttons and lid" line and set the power button action to hibernate. All I have to do is hit the keyboard power button, and I get immediate hibernation.

In addition to the Tuesday updates from MS, I run virus scans and CCleaner weekly, and after any of these, I reboot the PC. Clean, backed-up, and quick to start. Works great for my 2 home PCs.
