I tend to leave my laptop on all the time, though I have an iBook (no

I don't like to leave laptops on because I've had cooling fan failures
in a few laptops. I figure the less time the fan runs, the longer
it'll last. This may apply less to more recent laptops where the fan
runs very little when the machine is idle, though.
