Depends.

If I'm downloading torrents I'll leave it on.

If not, then I turn it off.

Its actually better to leave your computer on..
The starter that turns your computer can get worn out like a car starter
and most computers these days switch off to low power mode after a while..

No i don't.
My dad said its bad to keep a laptop on anyways.
haha.

Though i did have a desktop and I wouldnt leave it on,
cuz i heard it gives off radiation and can give you cancer...
and since its in my room..then i would be bottled up with that
radiation.
haha.

Nope, it's a waste of electricity. Especially when people are complaining about the high electricity bills and the issue with the environment. I would wait for it to turn on, if I feel impatient, I'll run downstairs and fill up a glass of water for me to drink or something.
