I've read that hibernating can be harmful on PC's (so I've heard...)

But what about "standing by"?

What's best for the computer's longevity? that or leaving it on or
shutting down every night?

Thanks

L(c)raptops or PCs? This question is a can of worms.

I'm always more concerned about "**** happening" when starting a PC
from any state than leaving one running. Electricity cost/consumption is
probably as good a deciding factor as anything.
