Re: Again.. How many people turn their machine off?
Nothing wrong with powering off when not in use, but perhaps it'd be a good idea to unplug as well. There is something called -- as I recall -- Wake On LAN that allows "powered off" devices to be turned on remotely. Obviously, some hardware isn't as turned off as one might desire when one flips the power switch off. Who knows for sure what is actually running in there when the power is "off".
