Unless you really need it to shutdown for some reason, or if your computer doesn't support it, try hibernating. It only uses a couple watts per hour(or maybe less than a watt?), and its faster than shutting down.

When you hibernate your computer, it actually shuts off. Granted now days all computers draw a small ammount of power when off, unless you actually turn the power supply off. But for all intents and purposes, its off. It saves what is active in memory to the hard drive in order to accomplish this.

And it is faster than fully rebooting, I use hibernation on my laptop all the time.

Hm...nice idea...but my last try of hibernating was worse....save electricity i guess!

one more thing, it's more on uncertainty?
