I highly doubt that the rise would be that much for a computer. Mine has not been turned off for a good few months, and our bills are not rising very much at all. And yes, you can leave them on all the time, but they will require restarts every now and again, because of the files building up in the temp folder. Hence one of the reasons servers have 99% uptime.
Also, did you know, that to switch a computer on and off, on and off, on and off, is more expensive, as oppose to having it on all the time..
