I've had mine for over a year... never unplugged them at all, except to restart them when something went wrong. In fact, I have sleep disabled because I have had problems with them not waking up properly.
No need to worry about it... sleep (or not) is fine. They are very low power devices when not actively being used.

Here is something interesting. I used to have a hard time waking up mine as well. I actually found the remote to be kind of unresponsive in general, but the worst when it came to waking up the unit. Well, someone in the house lost the remote....couldn't find it anywhere. I finally went online, ebay I think, and ordered a new one, it was cheap enough. When the new one showed up, I noticed it looked a little different that the original. Battery went in the bottom instead of the back, and it was white instead of silver. This new remote works WAY FRIGGIN BETTER!! Wakes up my Apple TV right away, no problems. So, I don't know what that was all about, but seems like there was a quiet remote change you might want to look into......and it was pretty cheap. I don't think it cost me more than ten dollars or so......

Mine works perfectly. I just leave it on, and after I shut my TV off, it sleeps about 20 minutes later. The current draw on it is so low, who cares if it even runs all day long?
sofryj, my remote that came with my ATV2 has the battery on the bottom, and is silver. I wonder if they updated it recently? I wished ATV used a Bluetooth remote like the Roku uses, that eliminates a LOT of problems. I could be in the next room and pause my Roku-doesn't need the line of sight the ATV2 does.
