I've read a little bit on this and people seem to say different things. Some say that it'll generate power spikes which may damage the power supply, and in turn will damage the rest of the components. Others say it is totally fine.
No i mean when you start your computer up in the morning the HDD's use a lot of power to spin-up.
But i agree with zero, even if you turn off your computer it's still drawing power, so in turn it's saving you money with turning off the powerbar.
