Re: Put to sleep or shut down?

Thank you Tom for your thoughts.

All three of my iMacs are HDD based, also all of my back up external drives.  I hope to get a SSD external soon.

Like I mentioned, my oldest iMac is 2006 and I rarely turn it off... always put to sleep and runs just like new.

The Apple customer support representative caught me off guard when she said to "always turn it off".

Thanks again.
