    If I leave my computer on sleep is it ok to have the blue led light flashing
    all night?It's just that it seems to be flashing fast.

    Yes. That light indicates the computer is sleeping, rather then off.

  3. Yes it is normal. Personally I don't like leaving my machine in sleep mode
    overnight, neither do I like leaving it on all day either, I would much
    rather turn the machine off completely. However, if you prefer to leave your
    PC in sleep mode then that is fine. All the flashing LED is telling you is
    that the machine is sleeping.

    Thanks for replying. Actually if it is alright to keep turning it off
    instead of putting it in sleep mode then that is what I would prefer to do.
    Thanks for the information.

  5. As I said in my original post, Spangles, my desktop is turned off at the end
    of use. I will put it into sleep mode if I'm going to be away for half an
    hour or so, but never any longer. If I'm away for a couple of hour the
    machine is shut down completely. My laptop is treated in the same way.

    Strangely, whenever I do put the machine into sleep or hibernate I can
    never, once I come out of sleep or hibernate, log on to the internet again;
    I have to reboot completely, so sleep and hibernate are not really much use
    to me.
