personally i shut off my macbook every night and turn it on every morning, putting it to sleep when it's not in use. i find it starts to run a little slow always just putting it into sleep. plus.. at night.. that little light is very bright..

but not only does it default to sleeping when you shut it, but you need a third party app to stop it from doing this. if you ever want to, insomniaX is a good program to check out.

and as for the magnets. all computers now adays are pretty much safe for using average magnets around them. although.. putting one of those HDD magnets near an on HDD... can be... interesting just make sure it's a HDD you don't plan on keeping...
