If you rarely power it off(maybe to "reset" or "refresh"), pick option 1.
If you power it off at the end of the day, pick option 3.

Does the manual say anything about whether to power the system off as opposed to putting on standby, by the way?

Stop pretending that the Vita, 3DS, PS3, and Xbox 360 are JUST video game systems. They're entertainment products.
Electronics evolve and advance. Deal with it.

That'd be option 3.

Sometimes I'll leave it in standby overnight, but I usually turn it off.

The only time my Vita goes off is with updates or it runs out of battery for any reason, other than those reasons above always in standby mode.

I only turn it off when I am charging it (usually overnight, and power it back on the next morning).

My Vita has been on stand by since launch, maybe off for memory changes and all that, never more than a few minutes, same with my 3DS, has been in sleep mode since launch....

I'll play for up to three hours or so at a time (until the battery indicator is by the halfway point) then shut it off and throw it onto the charger.
