Hey

 

If you are going to use Mesh (connect APs via WiFi) you would be best to have the controller running 24/7.  While you can shut the server down, its really not recommended as this will take the APs offline after it starts up.  The controller is designed to run 24/7

 

Most people start this as a service automatically, as said its not ideal to shut the controller down.   You are best not running this on a home PC or a PC that will be used for other everyday surfing.

 

The OC200 is a cheap controller for home use, it can run 24/7 for using just 12v of power..
