I just put mine to sleep. Its there for a reason. My only complaint is that sometimes it wakes itself up, so when I'm sleeping, the lights of VALHALLA shine apon me.

lol that was too funny

I don't have any LED's really so I don't get that issue. Its ready to get them though if I feel like doing it.

I leave it on all the time in the winter because I keep my heat at 55 when I'm at work, and I don't want to power it up cold on a nightly basis. In the summer, I usually turn it off before going to work/sleep.

I use sleep mode, I only restart my computer when I absolutely have to. I've got an SSD, rebooting doesn't take long, but it closes all 500 bajillion windows and programs I have open which is very annoying

I keep my PC on so it can perform the automatic download for updates while I am away. I just turn the monitor off.

I just put a light kit in mine. It's a bit brighter than expected. Thankfully I have a dedicated room for the computers which is nowhere near where I sleep.
