Do you turn your PC off at night? Depending who you ask, turning off your computer at night is either a good way to save electricity or a good way to speed up the deterioration of your hardware. Here at Santa Barbara Computer Works “That Tech Jeff” I have always recommended that if you use your PC frequently throughout the day leave it on until you are done for the day, and then shut it off.

If you are a minimal user who gets on the PC once a day for a bit and thats it turn it off. A computer especially older models, uses quite a bit of power to turn on. Or maybe it’ll help prevent the build-up of dust. Or maybe powering down and then up again uses more electricity than just leaving it to hibernate would. Or maybe the RGB gremlins will get sad if you don’t leave a light on for them.

At this point there’s so much conflicting advice, it’s tempting to just throw up your hands and stop caring.

My question to you is this: Do you only reboot if a driver update tells you too, or Windows starts acting up?

Jeff is the greatest !! Very professional, great work ethic, goes above & beyond and makes you feel important and treats you fairly. My computer was dead and thanks to Jeff, it now is back to life, working like a charm. His service doesn’t stop there as he makes himself available after the fact as part of his service, with contact information in case I have any questions afterwards. He charges a flat rate only if he fixes your problem and there are no hidden charges. He is the real deal!! I highly recommend him & will be sharing my story to family and friends. Thank You Jeff !!

I was hesitant in contacting anyone from thumbtacks but luckily i did take a chance and it was the best decision i have ever made. Jeff was upfront with me and it made me feel comfortable., Jeff was able to accomplish everything that i needed from him and he went above and beyond from what anyone else would do. I wish i found him when i needed him 10 years ago ! Jeff is my go to person if i ever need him to fi my computer!. I was close to buying a new one but now he saved me from spending money on a new laptop
