    I will assume that you mean 50 degree C...that is completely normal, infact mine is at 50 degrees right now. Dont worry:)

    Yeah thats no problem. Plus, your display will sleep and really when you are sleeping, your MBP will be less than 50C. Just close other programs and let your downloads run. Lower all your settings and it will be fine. I leave mine on all the time when I am downloading videos/music. But make sure that you also let your computer sleep(shut down) for a little to clear the cache and all that.

    If you let it sleep, or even shutdown, your computer is doing nothing but sitting there. Leave the computer on. I only restart when an update requires it or if my RAM Page Outs gets too high. My MBP is only shutdown when on long trips (2+ hours). My temps stay around 55C and have had no problems in over 2 years.

    Yeah, it's fine. I only reboot when my MB freezes, or when I need major updates. You can turn off the screen at night with Ctrl+Shift+Eject.
