So, basically, as long as you act irresponsibly with respect to use of
energy and other resources, you will have no problem.
Powering down is often the optimum way of minimising energy usage and
maximising the time till land fill.
To avoid temperature transients entirely, you would need top end air
condiitioning and you would have to disable power management in the
hardware, and generate make work for both the CPU and things like disk
seek mechanisms, to ensure that temperatures were constant and even.
