It's perfectly fine to leave it running over-night, i do it all the time and i have a much much older system, no problems here, but do make sure to give the cpu some time to cool off once you're done with the overnight work(trust me, your pc will appreciate the rest)

why do you leave it on 24/7, are you running something, or is it better for the comp or something like that??

yes...you should leave it on 24/7...its better for the hard drive in the long run to not have it constantly being turned on and off

No problem at all. I do it sometime because I'm downloading a whole mess of stuff and they take awhile to finish. Other than that, I shut it down daily before going to bed.
