Do you tend to keep your computer/laptop on throughout the day or do you shut it off?

I tend to leave it on, with a cleaning and restart every week or so.

I tend to leave them all on. I hibernate my laptop and restart my windows machine at least once a week or when it's giving me trouble. My Linux boxes are also servers (file, media. FTP, web...) and I haven't turned them off in over a year.

I turn my laptop off nightly. It doesn't like to come out of hybernation and it's an ASUS known problem.

If I'm expecting to use my laptop again within anything less than a couple of hours or so I leave it to run, otherwise I hibernate it.

When I primarily used a desktop I typically just let it run all the time. Then my UPS failed and it shut down unexpectedly, causing me a lot of hassle to recover everything. After that I took to hibernating it when I wasn't using it.
