Why would you keep a Mac Mini on 24 hours a day 7 days a week? To me this makes no sense at all.

Because it is doing yeoman duty as my TV-PVR system, and is recording during the day and night for viewing at my convenience.

That is really pushing the MM to it's limit.

Not this again!


Thanks, I think it was well discussed.

BTW, it's not "on" 24 hours a day, while it's asleep. Is your TV "on" when you turn it off with the remote. No, it's asleep. Components are still drawing power. In the case of the Mac mini it's only 1.39 Watts while it's asleep. I see no reason to have to shut it off, in which case it is still drawing 0.8 Watts.
