1. Because it is expensive and waste of resources.

2. If you are running a machine 24/7, the room better have good air
conditioning to reduce all the heat generated. Air conditioning a room
could be very expensive depending on where you live.

3. Some people do not have power 24/7. While it may be surprising to people
in developed countries, this is very much true. There are places where
power cuts of 5-6 hours a day is very common. If you happen to live in one
of these places it simply is not possible to run a machine 24/7.
