I was just wondering if i could get some advice on shutting down/putting to sleep my 17" powerbook.

I've had it for about 2 years, the majority of the time it is on my desk connected to power and i just put it to sleep when i'm not using it. i do a full re-start every 1-2 weeks. Once or twice a month i'll use the battery power only, it lasts about 2 1/2 - 3 hours.

Anyway, should i be restarting everyday? disconnecting power? etc etc i'm not sure as i've always thought it's not good to re-start everyday. I'm not having any major problems but as my machine is getting older i thought i should be looking at looking after it properly.
