Re: I am going away for several months, is there any harm in having my ROKU idle that long?
A Roku uses very low power. It can only get updates if it’s plugged in. All Electronic devices should be plugged into a surge protector. But if you are going to be away for months there is no harm that can be caused by leaving it plugged in. If you were home it would be plugged in for those months anyways. Most people who aren’t home for months usually unplug things such as TV, modems, routers, microwaves and more. So if your worried just unplug it
