I was just reading the "How to reset the SMU on a Power Mac G5 (Late 2004/2005)" page http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=300341 and am now a little confused.

I own a Power Mac G5 (Late 2005), and every night before bed I turn it off and take the power plug out of the wall. In the instructions to resetting the SMU on a Power Mac G5, it states to remove the power cord from the computer for 15 seconds and then plug it back in.

By me always taking the power away from the computer, is this resetting the SMU every time? If so, can this cause problems?
