Is it okay to turn off the computer with the power button?
I have heard that it is bad to turn off your computers by holding the power button. I do it a lot because I don't like having to go to the menu and shut it down every time. Is there a real drawback to me doing this?
If you momentarily press the power button, it is like selecting "Shut Down".
If you press and hold the power button, it is a "Hard" Shut down and will turn off the computer without closing files/apps like a regular shut down does. This can corrupt files and potentially damage your computer.

I have an older pc and I've been trying to find some answers. I had this Christmas decoration that plugged into a USB port so I had it plugged into my computer. Today I wanted to use my computer so I used my mouse to try to get the monitor on and it wouldn't come on. ( Stupid me it wasn't turned on) so I decided to shut the computer off and turn it back on. I did so but now all it does is peep a few times then the fan comes on and stays on and the screen remains black. It's done that before every time I turn it off by the power button. How can I get it back on

Mine doesn't always shutdown properly so I have to do it. Sometimes it even restarts after I shut it down and sometimes if I put it in sleep it wakes up by itself
