How often should you restart your Mac if you leave it on?

I shut my Mac down every night. I can't see a reason to have my iMac turned on when I'm not using it. It just seems like a waste to me. Like if I was to go outside to go swimming. I wouldn't leave my TV on, because it's wasteful.

I restart mine once a day.

I usually restart mine, only when there's software updates available and that's usually once a month.
