I'm encountering some equipment breakdowns ussualy after a long weekends. The problem is an equipment that wont turn on. I found the source to be a power supply or switching regulator failure. I have read some experiments on capacitors that shortened its service life after turning on and off. is it really true that you are creating stress on equipments in turning them on and off? Is it a good idea to let my equipments in idle?
