    My desktop stays on all the time, unless I am traveling. UPS shuts it down normally during power outage. Screen off after 2 hours non use, sleep deferred an additional hour. Never hibernate. I use both multiple HDD's, multiple 2.5 FF SSD's, and a single M.2 SSD now as well. Never experienced any drawbacks or failures. All anecdotal, but more input for your evaluation.

    my friend used to do it because he was too lazy to open up his stuff every time, so he put computer to sleep overnight

    used to is the keyword

    one day he went to sleep as usual leaving his PC in sleep mode, next day he woke up to dead PC

    turns out there was a dry storm nearby, no rain just lighting, it hit powerline nearby and the surge went through whole installation, it wasn't a direct hit that would burn everything down but it was still significant surge in installation, despite having circuit breakers in each residence, it hit his PC and other house appliance that was running overnight (well beside PC it was just fridge), other locators in building also had some damages

    since that day he always shuts off his PC overnight and even more, unplugs it, because you never know whats going to happen overnight, you cant protect yourself 24/7 but its just about minimizing risk

    if anything, hibernation is safer than sleep, because in hibernation all data is dumped on HDD and you can actually cut the power and data will be preserved and loaded to memory on next startup, in sleep mode, you cut the power and you lose what you were doing
