Do you shut off your computer at the end of the day? Do you shut it off even more frequently than that?

When I turn my computer on for the day and leave it on though my screen does go off after a while but not my computer. I do shut off my computer at the end of the day.
I shut off my computer when I am done working on a project. I frequently put my laptops to sleep when I do if I'm not done with what I was working on. It's nice to get the memory cleared out, all the programs closed, and a clean slate when starting something new.
If I'm not using my computer, I'll be having it shutdown. There is no need leaving it to hibernate. It affects the battery of the laptop. It's not difficult to switch it back on when I want to use it.
I'm horrible at turning off my PC, both my home PC and my work laptop.

Really need to get better at doing a full shutdown, and not just sleep mode ...

If I'm not using my PC or my laptop, they go into full shut down. I wouldn't leave it in hibernation because I don't see the need to do so. If I want to use it again, I can restart it, it's not difficult.
