OK, different way of working I guess.  Even if I'm half-way through
writing some code or such I tend to shut down so that everything is

If I want to come back to something I'm doing I just leave it turned
on, the screen blanks completely quite quickly (as in turns off, not a
screen-saver) so power consumption is reduced.
