    I never shut down my computer. That means the Tobii 4C is always on, too. Is there any reason not to leave it on 24x7x365?


    Some reasons not to leave it on:

    1. It’s bad for the planet
    2. Higher electricity bill
    3. Shorter device lifespan

    Hi @chillinski, certainly there are no dangers associated with leaving your eye tracker on, nor do we expect any appreciate loss of usability over time should you leave it active.

    That being said, from a purely environmental point of view (and indeed financial!) you may consider switching off the device via the system tray icon if you anticipate not using it for a particularly long time.
