    Actually when I go for a small break in between day time then I hibernate my computer. But when I have to end my work for a long break then I shut down my computer.

    So you also leave every television, radio, stereo, and light bulb on for same reasons. Or do you have a double standard based only in myths others have told you to believe. If you leave a computer on, then you also leave all those other electrical devices on for the exact same reason.

    Which also proves all televisions, radios, automobiles, and light bulbs must remain on.

    Does not matter what anyone does. What only matters is what the facts say. Best is to power off (ie hibernate) when done. Even sleep leaves the computer in a less stable state - leaves data at risk. What matters is why the informed do that. Irrelevant is what any one person does. As usual, the only useful answer also says why.

    With my MacBook Pro, sleep mode most nights and shut down once a week. I find the shut down once a week helps keep it running well and start fresh.

    External hard drive gets unplugged from the wall every night.
