That's why I no longer have a cat. They have a way
of racking up charges on gaming sites. I actually have
a BIOS password, so someone can't start the computer
when I'm not here. But it's not really critical. I don't
bank or shop online. There are no credit card or
account numbers to find.

But I guess that's one way I do things differently from
most people. I not only don't bank online but I also don't
leave my computer on when I'm out. It seems like most
people rarely if ever turn off their computer. That seems
crazy to me. I shut it off every night. The 30 second boot
doesn't bother me.


It's a good idea to turn off Windows 10, because
it has a bad habit of waking up whenever it feels
like it, and doing God knows what.


If I ever get stuck with Windows 10, I will shut it down, and then
hit the Master switch on the power strip. It can't wake up if there's
no juice.

I still have the BBC self-installing keyboard assistant (Retail version)

which I no longer allow in the computer room.

Putting the computer in the sleep mode is not the same as turning off
the computer.* To my knowledge there is no software that can activate
the hard ware switch.


Most desktops have a real power switch. IIRC, no laptops do.
