General question.

A self-proclaimed Apple guru says that Apple recommends turning their machines off once every two weeks. He says it has something to do with updates that happen in the background. Is that true?

Personally, I prefer to turn off a PC (yes, Apple machines are personal computers ) every day, especially after a heavy photo-editing session.

What do you think.

From page 15 of the iMac (2010 model){

"If you'll be away from your iMac for less than a few days, put it to sleep."

Cheers, Wolfd

Does "putting it to sleep" = turning it off.

No - it doesn't turn it off but it saves the inconvenience of a reboot.
Its a good idea to restart the Mac every once in a while.

Personal preference. I don't reboot mine unless I need to. I let it go for weeks and months at a time. Once in a while I reboot, like after an update or things like that. Once in a while I run onyx which then makes you reboot. But otherwise, no I let it go.

In fact, back a few years ago, when I used to visit sme Mac forums, people would brag about how long they went without rebooting. Some would go for months or years without rebooting.

Waw And I'm upset that I'm not "allowed" to turn it off everyday.

That's what I'm trying to find out. How long is "once in a while". One day/week/month/year.

What do you think.
Personal experience, Windows machines need to be restarted once a week. It's kind of like flushing the toilet. Mac's every two weeks to once a month for the same reason. Clean out any little bits and pieces that didn't go away as they should when you finished using a program.

More importantly with a Mac. Once a week run the disk utility and check the disk then run a permissions check.

For us we also run Adaware medic and a Virus scanner. I do not use a full time active anti-virus program just a passive virus scanner once a week. Every once in a while it will find something. It has always been some piece of windows malware that I didn't pass on to my windows using friends.
