I have always followed this basic principle--if it's newer than a tray-loader, always put it to sleep instead of shutting it down provided it will be used again within the next three days. Most Macs made in the past 11 1/2 years are designed for a silent sleep when not in use, allowing users to skip the slow startup process and resume productive work immediately while saving wear on components in the process.

Always turn your Mac off if there's a threat of the power being interrupted (and your Mac relies on wall power at all times, as is the case of desktops and laptops with dead batteries) or if you're going to be working on its internals.
