Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2010 6:33 PM (in response to Qstn)Several schools of thought:
1) never shut it off (but it's OK to let the display sleep, i.e., go to screen saver, but never let the computer or the hard drives go to sleep)
2) turn it on and off as needed
3) put the computer to sleep (including display and hard drives) when not being used
1) "always on" --- if having immediate access to your computer to get down creative ideas ASAP is important then there should be no other factors to consider.
2) "on/off as needed" -- the exact opposite of #1
3) "sleep" -- a happy medium? It depends... Waking a computer from sleep still means that you have to wait a while before you can start to record. You should experiment with your system to see how successfully it wakes up after being put to sleep before committing to this practice. Sometimes a system won't wake up from sleep and you'll have to re-boot anyway.PPC Quad, L9.0.2/L8.0.2, RME FF800, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

I usually put it to sleep when its not in use,
but I won't go for more than 48 hours without
shutting it down.
All is well, but I like to take precautionary
measures.imac, logic pro 9

But in general I would say: "don't." Just for the display it is allright though.EsMac Core2 Quad 2.5 GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.4), Logic 912 Nikon D70

Any thoughts on putting it to sleep
with logic still open?
