When this computer was working without problems and was contributing to the DNET challenge it was on all the time. But even then, I would logout when I wasn't using it.
So, I launch OW almost every time I start up the computer.
I also know many people that run their systems continuously, but this one doesn't want to do that anymore, although my media system still runs continuously, I really don't use it for browsing. I also know people that shut off the computer when they are done using it
I used hourly as an example, but I really wouldn't care if OW sent a few bytes to Omni every hour to check as I don't pay by the byte. Now Omni might care if a few thousand users of all of their products were constantly pestering the update server constantly.
