When to leave your PC powered on

Often we get asked if computers and thin clients need to be shut down at the end of the day. The short answer is yes, with one exception... weekends.

On Fridays we ask that you Log off rather than shutting down. This is so that anti-virus scans and Windows updates can be pushed out over the weekend.



Note: Thin clients, such as these shown below, can always be shutdown at the end of every work day. The above weekend rules only apply to workstations and laptops. (Sorry if the red warning overlay below is confusing.. I messed up)
