Default Leaving PC on 24/7

Just the other day, I went over to my friend's place and I found out that he hasn't shutdown his pc in 8 months. He told me that the reason he leaves it on is because:

#1 Too Lazy
#2 Dowloading Stuff
#3 Sometimes hosting servers
#4 Free electricity why not take advantage of it?
(he lives in an apartment)

anyways, I was wondering how many ppl leave their pc on 24/7? and why? Doesn't it were out the hardware in ur computer? and memory leaks?

I personally don't leave my pc on all the time, although when i'm downloading it leave it on over night, but otherwise, i just shut it down to save money on my electrical bill and not were out my computer hardware as fast.
