    When I put my iMac to sleep every night, is it necessary to close all active applications first?

    Nope, not at all. You can just put it to sleep.

    Nope, just leave them open. Remember to save your work though because you never know what may happen

    Better safe than sorry I suppose, but I've been putting all of my Macs to sleep every night since 2003 and not once have I had an issue with them waking back up.

    The whole purpose of sleep mode is so that you can quickly get back to work on your machine, so you definitely want to leave all your applications open.
