Also no it wont


If I use words like probably or most likely, it is because I dislike certainty. These words can probably be omitted and the sentence read as a certainty.

No

Overclocking is the thing that could potentially affect the life of your computer.. not turning it on and off :P

In a way, you will only be able to turn it on/off a certain amount of times before your computer dies, however it doesn't actually affect your computer life.

IT DEPENDS

 

If you use it very often or periodically leave it on (if your not concerned with bills) and use sleep

and if you dont use it very often then use hibernate or off, with tech these days its more likely your computer hardware becomes obsolete before it will wear and tear the computer,

plz do good gramer plz bi propheshinal

I go to sleep or watch YouTube videos in peace. Also because I have an overclock with a CX PSU, so for safety measures I turn it off.

Due to the fact that my computer is near silent at idle there is no point in me turning it off so I don't, also a lot of the time I have apps and other stuff open on my computer that I don't want to close resulting in me being reluctant to power off my computer.

I switch between sleep and shutdown when I'm not on it depending on how long I think it will be before I go back on it. Electricity is so expensive in FL so I mainly use other devices unless I'm gaming or doing something local where an ARM CPU doesn't cut it.

I shut mine down any time I'm not using it, because I'm an adult and have to pay my own electric bill.  I also turn off lights in rooms that nobody is in, and shut the refrigerator door between using or putting away things. :D
