I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

I got in the habit of leaving my system on at night. Early in the days of my computer experience, my husband woke me up about 3am, saying there was something wrong with the computer. I stumble into the room where the computer was, hit the switch to turn it on, went back to bed. Since then, we've each gotten our own systems, but out of habit I leave mine on. Another reason I leave it on overnight is because that's when I run malware scans, antivirus scans, and defrag.

Most Computers and even laptops now-a-days are suited to running on a 24/7 basis and it's even been shown that aside from some complications (such as Memory leaks on a faulty system and heat) computers run perfectly normal on the 24/7 basis with little to no change or harm done.
About the only thing that will happen if you leave the laptop plugged in all night is a slight increase in your electricity bill, as the battery and laptop will continue to consume energy so long as it is plugged in.
It's technically like your PC. Do you unplug it from the wall every night? Probably not, your Laptop will do just as fine as your PC :D
HOWEVER there are signs that leaving the laptop plugged in all the time and running at full can decrease the lifetime of parts inside of it (such as the screen and battery) to avoid this, when you are done with the laptop put it to sleep or hibernate (or close the screen as that will achieve the same effect)
This will put the computer into standby, shutting off the screen and un-needed parts.
