Turn it off if I'll be away for a substantial amount of time. You should have made this a poll.

My tower is virtually always turned off when I'm away for prolonged time. I dual boot and it's generally faster to skip the unhibernate and reboot step when I come back. Laptops I'll generally sleep/hibernate

Turn it off before bed time since I'll be at work for 8 hrs next day and wont use it again till after dinner.

Weekends I generally have it on all day, but if I'm going out for a few housr I'll prolly turn it off, especially if its hot out and getting hot in the house.

I put it in sleep mode. I don't use my laptop anymore so it's been shut off for a long time.

Sleep at night during the week, since as someone else mentioned I'm at work until mid afternoon the next day.

Weekends I flip between using Sleep mode and just leaving it on, since I usually end up using it the next morning anyway.

Sleep, always. If something's running or I'm just going to the bathroom, I may just leave it on and turn off the monitor.
