When should gear be turned off?
I'd Rather Play wrote:From the perspective of gear life/energy usage what and when should gear be turned off? Or put another way, how long should it be idle before it's worth turning it off?
I turn off my studio at the end of the day, and turn it all back on at the start of the day.. I have one switch that turns everything on/off.
I know of other studios that just leave everything powered up 24/7.. its always on.
I've heard people suggest that turning things on/off often can shorten its life, but I don't know how true that is - or perhaps it is relevant to some equipment more than others.. i don't know.
Personally I wouldn't worry about it too much... just switch it off at the end of the day!
