Answers :

It is fine to leave it on 24/7 if you configure the power options so it can go into suspend or hibernate mode, then it will not overheat. Click on start>control panel and Power Options. You see some options to suspend/sleep after so many minutes or if you close the lid. You use that option if you are going away from it for a couple of hours. There is also an option to put it in Hibernate mode. This is the mode to put it in when you go to sleep at night. Both of these options will slow it down enough so it does not overheat. Some people use these options and keep it on 24/7, no problem.
