|I only use my home computer maybe twice a day or so. I only have a few free moments at home. I run in, start it up and then do some small task (bathroom) and then when I get back it is running.|
Do you keep the TV, car, lights on all day? No you don't. Who would say keeping the TV on all day is better. The same is true for electronic computers. They fail because of time in use. The engineers call that MTBF, mean time between failures. They take into account turning off and on as a normal task. The same issues between standby and power off would be exactly the same. In fact standby would put power to some circuits.
Ask him his reasons to shut down. He may be as I was when married. I worried about paying bills and trying to save money. It is very stressful being a husband. You have to try your best to keep the family afloat and fed and sheltered and plan for retirement and such.
I built an "green" house 20 years ago when CFL bulbs were $30 each. Almost all of them have survived still. I am sure they have paid for themselves but the LED bulbs suck. I bought the so called best one and can't stand it. In fact, LED's are not better than Cold cathode CFL's nor are they much better than a CFL.
You and your husband will have to decide on how to run the home and what to spend money on. Just remember this is not a quality fight.
I do know that running my desktop in a small room heats it up so much I need to run a fan to keep the temperatures down. The room would raise temps by 10 degrees if I didn't.
