^^ Exactly, it avoids wear on components.
Never switch mine off, just restart it occasionally if it's running slow, but generally it's on for days on end.
I was advised not to switch it off when I bought my first iMac, because back then Jaguar ran overnight maintenance tasks (I assume that still applies actually) and I also used to use Macjanitor.
To date (famous last words) I have not had any component failures related to leaving it on, I've only had a superdrive die, which is unrelated and common anyway.
