Another simple question - but one I need to ask.
I am setting up a new computer and have a question about the settings that can turn off (or not) the hard drive.
I have never allowed any of my computers to turn off the hard drives - and I never turn off the computer - I only re-start it occasionally.
Anyway - What are the pros and cons to having the system turn off the hard drive after a set length of time?
I think the reason I never did this before (on other machines) is because I had difficulty getting the system to acknowledge that I was ready to use the computer - it would like stay in hybernation. But if this is a good thing to do and there is a simple keystroke to bring it back to life - I may want to do this.
Thanks for any input,
