Quoted from moat-pin:
I was wondering if this is ok to do. I’ve done overnight and the start button feels a bit warm when I do so wondering if it’s a bad habit to leave in for couple days in not
If your Lexi screen is intermittent, and is now working, I can understand leaving it on until your guests leave.
As an owner of a few older pins, I know that electronics can go bad just sitting there with the power *off*. Still, they will go bad faster with the power on. Heat will cause capacitors to dry out faster and so on.
Also the "air gap" power switch provides protection against power surges. Then there is the power and money savings of not leaving a pin on all the time.
Some may point out that the warm-up cycle is not a good thing, as the temp changes cause everything to expand and contract a different rates. I'm assuming only 1 or 2 power cycles per day, not dozens.
