It's common for cable/DSL modems to be on all the time. Same for routers (routers are protective devices which also filter/rout traffic).
If I had a combo, I would have it on all the time.
One of the reasons broadband is referred to sometimes as an "always on" connection .
One of the considerations may be the fact that your ISP is constantly monitoring your connection to see if there are any problems/disconnects which require attention. Leaving it on all the time doesn't send false signals from the user to the ISP.
I have everything plugged into a surge protector, the only time that protector goes off is when I leave my apartment on an extended trip (more than 48 hours).
My setup is probably similar to that of many persons.
I could turn my surge protector off, but it's not worth it to me. The Utilities are going to get your money, you might as well get some convenience out of it....
