Instant on should encourage a lot of folks to shut down for lunch...let alone over night!

Many machines can be put to sleep, which should just keep the RAM awake, so they're ready to go when you hit the power button. That doesn't get used much either...

As long as you can reboot the machine, it'll be ok - there's too many computer problems that can be solved by rebooting, rather than just resuming from where you left off.
