Turning off an UPS?

Hi P
 Share

Go to solution Solved by LukeSavenije,

it will filter the bit of power that's still going through the pc. so I would keep it on 24/7

Once I turn off the PC, do I also have to turn off the UPS? or does the UPS have to be working 24/7?

 

Thank you

No need to turn off the UPS, same as if you were to hit the power button on the back of the PSU, not needed.

It's not bad for it, just not necessary.

Long term, flipping the switch on the PSU is going to damage your PSU. There's plenty of threads here that have proven that.

It will wear out the switch but it's no different from unplugging it from the wall.

It will wear out the switch, it will wear out the in-rush current relay, the in-rush current from turning back on can damage some components over extended time....

 

It's just a bad idea and completely unnecessary.
