For the last 1.5 years I've tended to put my laptop in sleep mode rather than turn it off. Recently I started to feel it's not as fast as it was when I bought it, even if I restore a fresh Windows 7 image (I made it 1 week after installing the system for the first time).
Maybe it's just an impression, I'm not sure...
- Can it be a result of putting my laptop in sleep mode?
- What computer parts get worn down over time?
- Is there software to test if these parts are worn?
