Do you leave your controller plugged in when not running shows

Hi all,

I just go my controller yesterday and we had a small light show at the house last night. When you are finished running shows for the night do you normally unplug the controller from electrical outlet or leave it on? I do shutdown the pc at night after the shows have finished.



Thanks All,

Flanman

I have 7 controllers and everything stays plugged in, the computer shuts the show down, but it remains turned on as well. This way I don't have to remeber to plug something in the next day, or if I don't make it home in time, the lights will still come on by magic.

I leave mine plugged in. If would rather not have power going to the controller but dont what to remember to plug it in each night, consider using X-10 appliance modules.

On a related note: Does anyone plug the controllers into surge suppressors to keep the chance of spikes and brown-outs damaging the controllers?

I'm leave my controllers plugged in. Living in the NW and with the amount of extension cords in the yard, I am able to plug two controllers right into the lawn. LOL.

I leave mine plugged in, but a main timer shuts down all the power. I have a lot of static displays, along with LOR, and it's all hooked into the main timer.

Bill that was funny!:laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing:

Why just the other day I noticed my clothes were clinging and my hair (what little I have left) was curly. Went to the box and did the Uncle Fester thing with a C7.

Oh right now I unplug everything as I still have to do some things anyway. And I have some static on some of the same circuits.
