    Depends on what you do with your desktop. My main desktop serves as a printer server, backup server, DHCP server and a few other things. I leave it up 24/7 with a few exceptions. Those exception are power outages (frequent occurrence here) and heat. Most of the other computers in my house are put in standby or shut down each day. With laptops when traveling I always turn them off. The one computer at work is turned off and unplugged when not in use.
