Do you usually power down a laptop before shutting the screen?

My laptop is always in a docking station so the screen is always shut. But on the occasion that I take it out I just close it.

I find it funny that tests show conservatives are very likely to be close minded and not open to new ideas


Republicans you need to realize you have walls around your head and you are wearing blinders!!!!

Both of my laptops (1 pc and 1 Mac) sleep automatically when closed. That's good enough for me.

My Dell freezes/locks up if it's not shut down. My daughters refuse to shutdown. My husband & I do. The age filter is no surprise.

Ya there's no way your computer would be hacked if u just left it connected

Your pc can't be hacked simply by being connected to the internet

09/24/12 2:52 pm

The longer your PC is connected to the Internet, AKA on. The greater the chance it'll get hacked.

It saves energy to power down and unplug it if you aren't going to use it

My Mac wakes up in a second or two even after being left alone all day.

I used to power down before closing my laptop but after reading these comments, I'm not going to.

09/24/12 3:00 am

Nope. I never power down any of my Macs unless I'm not going to use them for more than a week.

@thezwerbot Haha! I like that! I hope you don't mind if I use it :) @Starry Stop looking for attention and just tell us about your laptop preferences instead! Find yourself a religion question and preach there where it fits!

Put it to sleep. Too lazy to go through the waiting process of turning it on

No, I do not power my notebook down when I close it's cover because a Windows PC lets you go to the Control Panel "power" settings and configure the pc to power down automatically when you or anyone else closes the cover.

Usually put it in sleep mode before closing the lid. If I don't, when it's next opened, the resolution is all weird (everything gets big).

Ok you are crying like a BIG baby. I hope my next comment in the other subject I will interact smoothly.

Starry- I'm not grumpy. Prayer has nothing to do with the question. You totally trolled the question!! If you paid attention to all the religious questions you wouldn't need to ask if I'm an atheist or tell me I need to be a good pray-er. Keep the religion on the religious topics.

Only shut down at night, I want instant access.
Which I also have with Jesus, my lord and savior.

I am not worry about what you think I am. All of you may ignore my comments but sometime other commenters like my message. Some of them are the caveman lovers. May God bless our interaction.

I always power down then close the lid immediately,habit I suppose.

Most of the time, because I rarely close it unless I'm done for now. When I used to carry it to work I had it set to continue working when closed, but those were the bad old days when it might take an hour to finish compiling. Now I just carry the iPad and do most of the heavy work on the desktop.

Shut down and unplug.

When you sneeze, and someone says God bless you, do you tell them about your penis? It was just a nice gesture, calm down.

I didn't see him/her shoving it anywhere. But that's just me.

Starry, religion is like a penis. It's cool of you have one, and it's fine to be proud of it. But please don't try and shove it down anyone's throat.

I mostly just shut the screen but sometimes turn the laptop all the way off first.

Can we all ignore Starry's comment and stay in the original subject?

Starry, you have this way to make me laugh.

09/23/12 5:51 pm

My Mac... Never... My win laptop.,, only if I want it to work without rebooting it when I open the lid again...

@jms...two commenters below replied me nicely. You are pretty grumpy. Obviously, you need to become a good prayer. R u an atheist?

09/23/12 4:49 pm

Usually, but not always. Boring question...What's with the "prayer" issue? That sounds more interesting.

09/23/12 4:44 pm

Yeah, did I miss something about praying? Isn't this about power downing laptops??? No. I don't

The question was about laptops not prayer!! Keep to the subject Starry!!!

No I don't usually power my laptop down. Waste of time starting it back up.
