I used to leave my pc on 24/7...however over the years I have amassed a collection of computers...so my energy bill was starting to notice. At present, I have a file server machine in my house that runs 24x7. However, my other machines are turned off. As others have said, these higher power machines are great, but they do consume more energy and give off more heat.
