To me, all devices are like lightbulbs. There is a finite number of times they will turn on and off before "going out". So, I leave it all on...

I think lightbulbs have a finite number of hours, not on/off cycles. For example, if a lightbulb is turned on only once, will it last forever? I'd say it's a combination of cycles and hours, for all mechanical and electrical things. So don't turn your computer off everytime you stop using it, but don't leave it running all the time, either. Moderation, as usual, is key.
