Clear them, most are just to track you & where you go on the Net.  
Some sites require Cookies to be turned on, but that does not  
preclude you from deleting them after a Net session.
As to turning computers on & off, there are 2 schools of thought.
Leaving it constantly on makes for less wear & tear on the hard drive  
& some utilities may run overnight, as Gerhard stated.
The Nay sayers claim it uses too much electricity & that turning off  
allows the hard drive to cool down.
In sleep mode the CPU, HD & Monitor use very small amounts of power.  
I turn mine off out of habit, rather than choice, as previous Apples  
did have heat issues & old CRT monitors were very prone to "burn in".
The choice is somewhat unclear.
