[Oliver Peters] "The best performance is if you shut down nightly with a complete fresh start in the morning (power off completely if you can, not just a computer shutdown). Then during the day, restart FCP X 2 or 3 times."

Interesting. I use the free app, "Free Memory", so I always know where my MBP's 16GB of RAM are. Whenever I see it drop below 10GB, I re-boot FCPX. My experience is the same, it just works better after the re-boot.

I almost never completely cold re-boot my MBP though unless I'm doing hardware upgrades. Would you mind expanding on why it's good to occasionally re-boot the machine vs. simply restarting? I'm a "sleep" and "restart" kinda guy.
