Leave controller ON or turn OFF at end of day

Hi all,

Are there any issues with leaving the controller on overnight?
Should it be turned off at the end of the day or does it matter?

Honestly, I have had my OS corrupted twice after power-down so I tend to leave it running unless I know I won’t be running for a few days. I have noticed the heat building up in the controller after a long period of idling. I don’t believe the hold currents on the stepper motors is a concern at all.

Your mileage may vary.
