for those who need to keep the pc running all the time here is how

What you need to do is go into Control Panel and in Power Options, there should be various and assorted options for controlling the PC's sleep habits

I wouldn't advise to be constantly glued to the monitor.

But I think it could be an alternative to a VPS if you use EAs: Take an old Laptop that you don't need anymore and let it run 24h a day. But so far I didn't find out to prevent Windows to reboot for updates. I have Chosen 'no automatic updates', but it still reboots sometimes.

It is more expensive to run your PC 24/5 then to buy a VPS. Not to mention less reliable.

For those running their trading terminals and EA's on own infrastructure I would recommend using a (small) server intended for 24x7 usage.
For added resilience install free ESXi in a small cluster allowing you to easily reboot the VM should the physical server fail.
MT4 (not sure about MT5) runs as a single process, hence it is preferable to only one (compute intensive) EA per MT4 client for performance reasons - communication between the EA's can be done rather easily by basic socket communication or a database as you may want to store state between restarts anyhow.

Bay server? Bad idea... it's better to rent VPS. They have cross connections to brokers trading servers and warranty of uptime. What's more they have mostly very fast internet connection.

If you buy VPS, be aware that MT4 terminals are RAM consuming...
