"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Its fine to leave your computer on all the time but its usually wise to use the energy saver control panel to "sleep" your monitor. Then you dont need the screensaver and it saves your electricity bill. It basically turns your monitor off for you after a set time. Energy Saver CP will also put your computer to sleep which again saves power and spins down your HD so its not grinding away day and night.
