You should shut the system down - not so much for Computer reasons but for ecological and "Green" reasons -- saving you money as well. -- I don't mean of course shut it down every five minutes or so - but certainly at night / if you go away on holiday etc etc.
1) You save energy - so your bills are cheaper.
2) we don't need to generate so much power -- again keeps the carbon footprint down and hence contributes to the fight against "global warming"
When you got to number 2, you lost me. There is no such thing as Global Warming.
