    Running Windows XP. Keep computer on for about 14 hours/day. During
    the time that it is on and I take a break, I put it on Standby.
    Question is: Does it make any difference in terms of computer wear and
    tear and energy use if I close or leave open the apps I usually have
    running (Maxthon browser, Thunderbird email, Winamp, ZoneAlarm, AVG, MS
    Antispyware)? Thanks.

    Doesn't make any difference if it's in standby.
