If I'm going to sleep: shutdown.
Going to work or I'll be out for more than 2 hours: shutdown
If I'm seeding a torrent or doing something that requires the computer to be on: duh, the computer will stay on even if I'm sleeping or going out.

I rarely put it in sleep mode.

I'd probably shut down at the end of every day if I had an SSD, but I usually put it in sleep mode whenever I'm not using it.

I shut it down, I prefer to use sleep but too often my PC locks up after coming out of sleep mode. Not sure why.

Doing this now too I guess.

Used to leave it "On" for a month, but use sleep mode at night. Now it, as you said, locks up when recovering from Sleep. Started when I swapped over to the Nvidia cards. :V

Sometimes I'll sleep it overnight, sometimes I'll power off. Depends on my mood at the time.
If I'm gone during the day it always goes off.

I let mine go to sleep overnight, but for a weekend or something, I'll shut it down.

Unless you like paying your power company more, shut it down.

The difference in power usage between a sleeping PC and an off PC is negligible
Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.
