comment Reinstalling Windows without losing data
Yes, instead of doing a custom install, select Upgrade, and it will install Windows, replaced the old one, but not delete your data. It functions in a very similar fashion as the repair install use to.

comment Windows 8.1 occassional boot delay
I would do a chkdsk /f/r and a sfc /scannow in the command prompt, if neither shows any errors I would use a utility to check for bad sectors or a failing hard drive.

comment Windows 8.1 puting hard drive into sleep mode
Sure, but what is most likely preventing Windows from going into sleep mode is another piece of software, in my experience the Steam Client prevents Windows from going into sleep mode. Anyways what I have done is to make sure that Steam is closed, then I set the computer to go to sleep after so many minutes (I think 15). I set the main power button to put the computer to sleep as well when pressed. If I am feeling inpatient I just do it through the menu. You can read the following article. lifehacker.com/5924010/…

You might want to consider a different Browser, avoiding flash (using HTML5) and cleaning the the air vents on your laptop with some compressed air.

comment Accessing to IP cameras behind TL-MR3020 nano router
In my experience the best solution would be to have the camerasconnct to a dvr that would record the video and manage the cameras then you would only have to worry about 1 ip to manage. And if you wanted access off-site you could open the port for the dvr

comment What's waking up my PC?
Steam wakes/prevents sleep on my computer because it hooks the auto and fails to let go of it. The only thing that works is to close Steam when I am not gaming...

@DoktoroReichard the current humidity is 85%, I would consider that "very humid"

comment Is it possible for a computer to be too cold?
in the winter the ambient temperature is cooler on the outside of the case than on the inside, thus any condensation would form on the outside of the case and not the inside, during the summer the opposite would be true.
