my understanding with the Power Macs/non-intel macs is that you should not put the computer to sleep or turn the power off.

There are scripts that run each night somewhere in the midst of the hours of 1-3 a.m. ish that clean up your computer, then another script as I understand it that runs on I think it's Sunday's around the same hours, and yet another that runs once a month on say the first that does yet even more upkeep of your computer.

If you are powering off your computer or sleeping your computer, these scripts are not able to run. And in that case, you would be wise to buy a program such as "Cocktail" which runs these scripts and more on your computer, making up for not running them in the middle of the night...

Hope that helps. I would assume this applies just the same to the intels...
