Standby or not
I know there are many opinions as to whether it is better to shutdown the computer or not when not being used for a few hours. However, what is the opinion on putting the computer in Standby for a few hours versus just letting it go into a blank screensaver for example ?

Another option you might like is XP's ability to Hibernate... similar to standy/shutdown, where all memory contents are saved to HD, then it turns all power off. Upon restart, XP loads to how it was running before, supposedly quicker than shutting down and booting up
