I never shut down my laptop unless I install something. I just let it sleep when I'm not using it and put it back in it's case. Do I have to shut it down though? I want to take good care of it.

No, not shutting it down will not hurt it. Of course, when it is sleeping, it still uses some battery to retain the contents of RAM. So if you are going on a long trip and will need to use it on battery power when you get to the destination, you might want to shut it down instead of put it to sleep. Otherwise you might arrive at your destination and find the battery dead.

When not in use for long periods of time shutdown, sleep mode should be use if you leave the laptop
for a couple of hours with a prompt password to keep others from messing with your info,laptops last longer just by keeping it off when not in use
