I’m playing with the Rules in AirMail, and it seems like I need to have a Mac running AirMail 24/7 to get the rules to implement on my iOS devices. I have a Mac Mini at home that is always on, but it is in Sleep mode when unattended. I assume that to get the AirMail app to implement rules, I will need to disable sleep on that machine.
Does anyone else leave their machine fully running 24/7 (never in sleep mode)? I’m wondering what the cost to me really is? I’m assuming the power consumption is relatively negligible, but I might be wrong. I’m also nervous about the system being really laggy when I do sit down to use it, after being on 7+days.
I just replaced my Mac Mini i purchased in April 2014 and has been running 24/7 processing cancer research data non stop. I replaced it with a new 2018 Mac Mini because the old one was getting slow due to macOS advances. I also only rebooted the 2014 Mac Mini for software updates and power failures.
