Thunder storms and computers

Recommended Posts

I keep mine on, but i have a surge protector, UPS, and another surge protector inbetween my computer and the wall... without a good surge protector you should definitely unplug it...

I have a surge protector. I usually leave my computer on. If the power goes out then comes back on, then I will usually leave my computer off until the weather calms down. If you keep turning your computer on and off within a few minuter you could run into problems.

I usually leave mine on because I think I have a surge protector......... Actually I might not, all I know is the computer and everything is plugged into a powerstrip, but I'm not sure if that powerstrip has a surge protector  :?. I hope to god I don't get punished for my ignorance  ;).

There are 7 people living in my house. Mom, Dad and then 5 kids and I think that if we unplugged all the TV's and shut down all the computers during T-storms we might just drive each other crazy before the storm was over  :lol:.
