Those scripts run on all OS X Macs. It has nothing to do with the processor. It is a part of the operating system itself.
Besides, if you absolutely must sleep or shutdown, you can use something like MacJanitor or OnyX to run those scripts at your leisure.

i shut mine down if i'm not going to use it for a day. i found by putting it to sleep affected the ram, slowed things down noticeably which corrected itself when i restarted. so i put it to sleep for that reason.

Personally I shut the machine down if I'm done using it. I know some electrical appliances that offer standby/sleep functions like televisions and computers will just be using unnecessary electricity. It seems a complete waste.

I don't know how bad a specific Mac would be in this regard, but I've developed a habit of powering down anything I'm not using just in case.

The only time I ever really sleep my Mac is if I'm making a quick trip down to the kitchen to put together a snack or running to the laundry room to empty the washing machine or tumble drier. That's assuming my Mac isn't in the middle of something. :)
QUOTE Thanks
