To sleep or shutdown

Recommended Posts

I know its really easy to close the lid and leave the machine, it's great to come back and just open and start using but is it a problem to leave a macbook in sleep for a long time? I realise it will be using some juice but its a PITA to keep shutting down and booting up all the time.

 

As this is my first mac just wondered on your thought

 

:D

I don't shutdown my MBP for weeks on end...

 

I've done this with every Powerbook I've ever owned and never have had any related problems...

it's an option

 

If you go to energy saver in the system preferences... enable "Put hard disk to sleep when possible" to get the best results on the battery (note- make sure your looking at the "Battery" one, not the "Power Adapter"
