I've always left mine on 24/7. The only time I'll shut it off is if I'm away for a few days or away on vacation.

My old P4 which was 3 years old was left on 24/7 and never had a problem.

When I want to use it, I'm also too lazy to wait for it to boot up so that's another reason I just leave it on all the time.

I leave mine on all the time. I have a quiet system so doesn't bother me when I sleep. The only three times I have had it off in the last 2 1/2 years is when I went on vacation twice and once when the power went off! :P
