My main machine is running a dozen VMs 24/7; powering it down is a 20-minute job. Plus I'd be interrupting processes that should probably be left running all the time.

The machine on my desk is an Intel NUC and uses 40W at absolute peak load, I believe...Intel's claim is that playing a 1080p video off of YouTube burns through less than 10W. Letting it idle overnight seems like a no-brainer to me.

I also have a NAS which by definition should pretty much always remain available.

That said, I always leave my laptop into hibernation mode, as I simply don't trust sleep mode to ever resume correctly.
