It's fine if you leave it on all day and night.
Poor ventilation would be bad whether you were there on it or it was just on and idle on its own, but the battery will degrade with time.

It shouldn't. Mine's on 24/7 except when I travel which, as of late, has been infrequent.

Edit: @yowanvista, good reminder regarding ventilation.

No... it shouldn't, however you should let the battery completely drain from time to time, then recharge it ...

You're very welcome.
I saw the *wink* at the end of your first statement, just as it is at the end of the one above, and surmised you might be speaking in jest, or facetiously.

Sorry.
