I have just been advised on another forum that I should only switch off my laptop, TV, or digibox if I am going to be away for more than a few days. Apparently, the surge when you switch on is very bad for the device.
I do leave my TV/Freesat box on Standby overnight, but sometimes it freezes and the only way to get it going again is to unplug it from the mains.
The person who gave this advice said that the amount of electricity used is minimal and much less expense than having to repair/replace your equipment.
