Yeah, you can sleep it all the time, only shutting down for more then 2 or so days of non use. Just keep track of the battery

I've kept mine on up to four days, sleeping it over night. I've heard of people doing much more than that..like not shutting it off since they got it five or six months earlier...I try and restart every once in a while, other than that..it's made to stay on.

i used to use sleep all the time but now I see when I restart there is much less of the "Inactive" memory on my system.

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System
