Tech Tip: Don’t shut down, restart!

ICYMI: We ran a great tip last fall on the importance of restarting your computer rather than just shutting it down. KCIT maintains our computer systems around the clock, even while most of us are sleeping. But, your computer must be on. This is especially important when security patches are being deployed.

So, if you leave your computer in your work area when you depart for the day, hit “Restart” instead of “Turn Off” when you go home. Doing so cleans up your computer and allows KCIT to roll out the necessary upgrades and patches so your device is up-to-date when you return the next day.
