    If Im going to leave my MBP alone for about 12 hours or so, is it best to turn it off, put it to sleep, screensaver, close it or what?

    I've heard that it's best to put it to sleep instead of turning it off, as booting up puts a lot of stress on your computer. When leave my MBP for an extended period of time (when i sleep etc.) I usually sleep it. There was a discussion on this thread about this type of thing. One user said that he/she routinely leaves their laptop on for ~1 month straight without any noticable slowdown. Personally, I put it to sleep.
