if your running windoze, you can leave it on for ever....
if your using windoze, you better reboot every now and then...

only time i have shut down or restarted my computer is because of installing new programs/ power-outage/ leaving for a vacation during the summer for 1-2 months. i guess the computer should take a vacation once in a while too.

I leave mine on all the time except when I won't be using it for a few days because I'm gone or something. But my dad is always turning it off because he says it's "bad" for it, but he doesn't know anything about computers so I do it anyways. I've never seen any harm done.
