Leaving the computer on at night

My computer doesn't like being turned off*, so for the last few nights I've left it on. On one hand this means it works immediately the next morning and I can leave downloads running over night instead of while I'm working. On the other, every time I'm lying in bed thinking of something I should do, I'm tempted to get up and do it immediately because it's only 1 metre from my bed! So I do. This was one of those things. :-|

* When I switch it back on half the time it goes dead after between 1 and 60 seconds. I have to turn it off at the hard switch or the wall and discharge it (press the power button until the light on the motherboard goes off) and turn it on again. Once it's been running for a minute I have no problems. Anyone got any ideas?

    Sorry, I'm a philosophy student who's just discovered your blog. Give me a moment, then I'll say something funny.

  5. Nice to see I provide the Philosophy students with something to laugh about. At least I don't get his emails any more!

    (See Who Am I? if you didn't understand that.)
