It is fine to let your computer sleep, it saves electricity, you will just have to run the scripts yourself, either by running them in the command line, or with some other utility, like Cocktail.

If you are not going to turn your computer off or put it to sleep at night (or even if you are), why not get Folding@Home so your mini is doing some work to help save lives when your not using it?

I'm already saving electricity by switch from the PC with the 480W power supply to the G4 Mac mini.

Maybe later. For now I'll just leave it on.
