I agree with Bonni. The royal "we," as in "now let's boot the
computer," is irritating.

I have generally been able to avoid "it is recommended" jargon
by substituting a reason, for example:

Many mail servers transmit messages during nonbusiness hours.
Therefore, to ensure that all mail messages are received,
do not disconnect your computer at night.

(Instead of: We recommend that you leave your computer on at night.)
