While I appreciate the IT industry reference (I worked for a major computer manufacturer for 33 years), I don’t see that it applies here. This is a unit that ships in a road case with casters. It’s meant to be “out and about”, making “always powered up” a bit difficult. I would think sitting in a rack as it is (see above) would eliminate seating issues.

Said another way: If cards need to be periodically reseated or systems should always be powered up, why is that not also true for the desktop PC industry?

If my desktop PC failed every 30 days, I would not be satisfied when Dell told me I just needed to leave it on all the time and/or reseat the CPU every month or so…
