    So basically lately I've been leaving my MBP on overnight and such without using it, and I was wondering if this was terribly bad for it in any way..

    Mostly it's for things I'm downloading and such.. but I also have a PC I can use if I have to, it's just much more convenient with my MBP. I turn the light down all the way and just leave the lid open and call it good, I just don't want to screw up a new MBP's lifetime.

    Download BOINC, pick a project, then let them idle-cycles be turned into something useful.

    Personally, I'm running ABC@Home which is trying to prove a complicated mathematical conjecture. :eek:

    If you don't care about the money.. at least have a care for the environment and turn it off!
