Press the power button??? are you crazy??? I keep my computers on all the time so I don't have to wait for them to boot (I use 2, a P133 at Home and a PII-450 at my office)
they both run 24h/day, the only time they're off is when I add new hardware or there is a power outage!!!

 How big of a UPS, though, Andy?  <G>  Even a 900 VA UPS will only last
SO long if there's a day-long power outage (One startup I worked for had
been resisting any sort of coding at my house, until they lost power for
2 weeks in a big windstorm ~ 5 years ago...)  Get a UPS & then get a
*Generator*!  Or a huge battery bank <G>

 Myself, I do turn machines off for hardware re-working (too often <G>)
or for lightning storms, and the special-purpose machines that only are
used for 2-3 hours every couple weeks (Backup monster, tech support
machines) get powered off the rest of the week;  the rest stay on <G>
Monitors get powered off sometimes, sometimes not.

 Still need a generator here, myself, though.  It's on the list for
December...

Make sure you check the local ordinance on that - I thought
I was being so clever by having a generator standing by
for emergencies, then two winters ago we had a two day
power outage.  I proudly fired that sucker up, out on
the balcony of my condo, only to have the fire department
show up on my door and make me shut it down within an hour.

I guess a neighbor got jealous...

 If you don't have a safe (?crossover?) switch (so you don't power the
line from your generator!) you could accidentally electrocute a lineman
working on the lines, of course (Not desireable.)  Don't DO that, it
annoys the electrical company folks a lot!  And you'd have an easier
time in a house than a Condo, we're in a house here...  Good idea to
check, thanks!  (Thought I'd mention the safety switch before someone
ELSE does, I just would power certain things with a smaller generator,
not wire the whole house, I think.  If Robin needs her asthma nebulizer,
she NEEDS it, if the fire department bugs me then they can help her
breathe without it <G>

 I imagine it might also be a noise issue with the neighbors, as they'd
have to have a window open for circulation.  And beware generator
exhaust, CO is bad bad bad <G>

 Old thread.  I don't mind PCs staying on, since they have a double
metal case around the PSU, but monitors go OFF when I am asleep or out.
I consider them *the* major fire risk.

 Noted comments following.  If you live in a hutch, you better resign
yourself to living like a rabbit.  If however you have a basement, you
put the generator in that, with a well-sealed pipe from the exhaust
through the wall and out (away from any doors/ windows/ vents).

 The big trick is that apart from the first metre or so of pipe which
is stainless steel with heat radiator fins, the rest of the pipe (3m)
between muffler and wall is thick *rubber* similar to car tyres.  (4
stroke engine; no oil emission).
