My Otari 54 was on 24/7 for the first 4 or 5 years I had it. The cost of running the console and air cond round the clock was weighing on me so I started turning it off when not in use. Maintenance issues did not increase so it has been about 12 years now with daily power cycling. The amount of money saved in electricity has been substantial.

By the way, one of the first things I changed on the console was to install a pair of whisper fans in the lid of each of the 3 supplies. Keeps the supplies at a constant decent temp.
