    The only times I turn my laptop off is when I go on long trips and I am not going to be bringing my computer. I leave mine all the time, and it still runs like the day I bought it.
    You should be fine with leaving your iMac on.

    Temperatures in summer are regularly over 100 degs. F - internally as well..

    Never had any problem with my 4 Macs 'over-heating'...
    Although my Apple TV1 gets warm....

    I do use large fans daily - and air-con. at night when my Sons are visiting...

    However, I don't use my iPods in the daily summer heat when I'm out doing my walking as they do tend to discharge a lot more quickly....

    Finally - I never switch any of my Macs off.
    Unlike amateurish Windows p.c.'s - they are meant to be left on 24/7.
    Live each day as it comes - it may be your last !?
