Running WinXP-SP3, which sometimes takes a good 4-5 minutes to start up from switch on. How safe/ sensible/ length of time, is it possible to leave the computer in stand-by mode? Could I leave it overnight so I have a quick start when it's next used? Thanks Aitch
Currently, Athlon 1.8. 512Mb, Asus motherboard, 240HDD+peripherals, and using AVG8, Ad-ware and Spyware doctor (occasionally) plus firewalls for netgear router and windows. Have minimised my start-up items and Norton has long since gone as it was even longer start up with that installed.
Thanks for the info, a lot of it i didn't know or realise. I will not be increasing the memory as of yet as I intend replacing the computer in a couple of year time, probably about the same time as Win7 hits the market and will upgrade memory then. Will try the suggestions to see what effect it has, thanks, Aitch
