Is it better for my laptop's lifespan to leave it on all the time or shut it down when I dont use it?

Yes. It will expand the lifetime of your machine. If you don't need to have it on when you go to bed, you just turn it off. Leaving your PC or laptop always on isn't a bad thing per say but you save the life of your screen, battery, mechanical components, etc. over time.

Hope this helps.

Will its lifespan be reduced? Or should it stay on all day 24/7. I use it frequently but not during night. Its a laptop LENOVO Y410P

Even if its better for desktops to leave them on? I guess laptops last longer if they are off correct?

Sorry I thought that computers get higher lifespan if they are kept on all the time since everytime they get turned on the cpu overheats hugely and the parts wear out. This is wrong then?

Experts say that the cpu wears out everytime it is turned on, which reduces lifespan
but also when its left on all the time, so what is better choice?
I use my laptop 10 hours a day non-stop but not at night.
