It would depend on your computer and how hot it may run. If it runs reasonably cool, running a computer overnight shouldn't be a problem. Mine runs around 38C most of the time (it's running around 41C right now because the room is 28C) and I run it 24/7 without any problems.

If a computer does not have hardware issues, such as overheating, it should be able to run 24/7. Many people do this. Servers do this as a matter of routine.

Should be able to run it for as long as you want with no problems. Adequate cooling will keep temps under control.

I know with Windows XP, a couple of weeks of uptime would see the system start to get bogged down, so a restart would be required, but I doubt this is the case with 7.

I've noticed my RAM usage gradually increases over time but a restart will correct that.
