Bad to leave base stations on?

Loving the Vive, not really any complaints. Love watching friends' reactions to trying it out for the first time.


I do have a question though. I keep the base stations in relatively hard-to-reach places, and I've been leaving them on. Is there any damage to them? Will it reduce their life expectancy, rather than going to unplug them and replug them in every time I play?

 

I wish there was a way to remotely turn them on/off but unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case!

Thanks all!

Im not sure, but I happen to do the opposit thing and I unplug them every time I use the vive to save power and in the rare case there is an electical surge.

As with anything, leaving it running will increase wear-and-tear on it, however, in my experience, you can leave the base stations running indefinitely and they work just fine.
