Poll: How Often Do You Turn Off the Power to Your Internet Connection?
Authored by: transeau on Oct 05, '07 01:36:12PM

My DSL Modem, SonicWALL, SonicPoint, and AirPort N are always powered on, except for vacations / trips lasting longer than 2 days.

My DirecTiVo and ReadyNAS are also always up and running. My servers (3 of them in a data center) are rsync'd nightly to my ReadyNAS, so I MUST leave my internet connection up.

As for my Mac's, they all stayed powered on 24/7 unless on vacation / trips lasting longer than 2 days. However, they are all set to sleep in an hour of idle time.

Oh yeah, as for heating / cooling.... We use ceiling fans most of the year, using the heater / AC only when the temps hit the ranges that are not comfortable for my 3 year old.
