What to do with computer during thunderstorm?
We seem to be stuck in a summer of non-stop thunderstorms here and in other parts of the country. I usually shut down my computer but is that enough? Should I unplug it from both electricity and cable? How do I unplug the cable connection? Will I lose my settings by unplugging?
I have a big surge protector but I am told nothing will protect the computer if lightning strikes the house electric system. In fact, today a man here in the Boston area was injured by lightning while working at his computer. So what to do?
