You can run the machine until the parts wear out. IE LCD Screen, HD, etc., etc.

If the machine is performing NO functions, I suggest cutting it Completely Off during periods of NO use.

I don't know if there is even a Mean Time for system component failures in laptops.

May be in your documentation under system specifications.

Kindest Regards,

Laptops are usually a lot more heat sensitive than desktops. If you plan to have your system running most of the time for many months or years, I would consider a desktop. I have a friend who runs an old Dell desktop since several years - he has never switched it off.
