I just switched to a macbook pro 15" 2.66 ghz i7 from a macbook 13"

i would like to have it running perfectly

here were some of my habits with the last one.

i slept with it on everyday it did go to sleep in a while but i used it as an alarm for getting up

i use it a lot for school so i normally just close it but it in my bag and keep on going should i shut down each time im gonna move.


i do a lot of browsing and downloading what is the best way to keep my computer clean? I normally use onyx to clean it how often should i run onyx if its the appropriate thing to use.


any other recommendations and any things i should do to prevent ruining it like not putting headphones on the aux plug

That's fine, no need to shut it down

Using OnyX once every couple of months or so is more than enough.

The main thing is to just use it and enjoy it.

Congratulations on your new purchase
