This is probably a basic question, but Im looking at purchasing a mac mini with OSX lion server. The mini will be monitor free and sitting in the corner of my room. I would like to try and keep the energy consumption down. When the mac/server is not busy (ie: over night) can the mac be shut down or does the mac/server always have stay on? I will be hooking up some WD 1TB drives as storage too.






Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
