Other than the obvious, what are the benefits to leaving one's computer on all the time? Aren't you using more electricity that way? Doesn't the Mac have to run diagnostics on startup? This matter, as I recall, used to be debated.

Not sure why you started a new thread, since you had one going at Startup time and especially since ganbustein essentially answered the question there.
