I have a habit to Keep PC powered on the whole day and put it in sleep If I am not using it. Just before night, Sometimes I hit the power button inadvertently. Is it bad?
What things are still running when I put pc in sleep. Does HD still keep spinning? If all hardware except ram is technically turning off then why SHUT down said to be wear hardware than sleep mode.

I don't know what "memory overtime" might be but shutting down power would empty whatever was in RAM at that time and next start would be same as if it was started from shutdown. As disks don't spin during sleep, there would be no file system corruption as it's possible with forced shutdown while running. In other words, nothing can go wrong.
