It uses minimal power if you let it idle. And the machine will last longer. The biggest failure mode of electronics is connections physically coming loose due to thermal shock from frquent power up/down cycles.
Also, I frequently have several projects open that I need to be working on. Having them open in front of me tends to get them more attention. I could not do that if I powered down nightly.
